October 9, 2009

Charlotte's doctor, Dr. Lagatta, recognized today that Charlotte has not made much progress in the past 1.5 weeks, so she decided to give her a little help ridding her lungs of fluid. Charlotte's will be given a diuretic twice daily to see if her breathing improves. Hopefully easing her breathing will give her more energy to eat on her own.

She's getting bigger, now 4 lbs 3 oz. She's still tiny, compared to full-term babies, but has grown a lot in the past month. The dietician says she's gaining weight as desired and will continue at this rate until she's 3 months old gestationally, so until about February.
