3/1/06 Mid-Day Update

I went and saw Emma very briefly this morning. They were going to do another Blood gas soon and then going to discuss whether to try and extubate (take out the ventilator) her or not today. She is still on room air on the vent. Still doing well on full strength breastmilk. She is up 1/2 an ounce so she now weighs 1 lb. 14 1/2 ounces. No real change since last night. I'm beginning to enjoy hearing there is "no change" while she is doing well. Better than hearing that we've taken steps back. Sean and I will be going back tonight. Maybe she won't have the tube in anymore!

Up another 1/2 ounce? That's wonderful news!!! It must be the mommy milk.

It must be. Nothing like that "liquid gold" to help her put on some chub!
