And She's Off!
And growing, that is. Hope gained another 30 grams yesterday, so she's up to 2 lbs 2 oz. Yahoo! They are up to 2.2 ml/hr on her feeds, which the doctor said is about 1/3 of what she needs. She is progressing well. She still has a lot of gas in her tummy, but no one seems to care much anymore. They've decided that's just how she is. She is pooping well, so it looks like things are working. She finally went back on cpap after 34 hours on the nasal cannula. She just got kind of tired. Whether she goes back on the cannula depends on which doctor she has. Today's doctor wants her on it, yesterday's doc preferred that she stay on cpap. Either way, she's doing fine. Thank you, Lord, for this miracle baby!
