October 5, 2009

Our 8 week old has been opening her eyes a lot wider lately and checking out her surroundings. I hope she doesn't like them and wants to go home, like I do!

She's gained even more weight and is now 3lbs 15 oz. Perhaps tomorrow will take us out of the 3 lb range. The doctors are pleased with her weight gain and have increased her feeds to 34 mls every three hours to keep up with her. She took all her feeds by tube today, but we'll keep trying oral feeds tomorrow.

No changes to her respiratory support.

She's maintaining her temperature very well and the isolette was removed from her room yesterday. Now she has what seems like a huge room for her little self.

Now that it's October, she's been sporting her festive Halloween hat:

She has beautiful big eyes! Is that red hair? Congratulations on all of her positive progress. The three of you will get to be home together soon!

Thinking of you all,
