Still doing well..

Emma is still doing well. She continues to need her small bit of oxygen. It ranges between 21-30% throughout the day. She normally needs closer to 30% during her feeds and goes down to the low 20's throughout the rest of the day. She now weighs 2 lbs 12 oz. You can really tell she has gained some weight. She's getting 23 cc/ml over a 1 hour period every 3 hours. She is handling her feeds well. She is still having quite a few spells, but there is less brady and it's more of the desats at this point. She is only having about 9 brady spells a day which is ALOT better than what she is having. The ones that she is having are more self resolved at this point which is also great. Unfortunately, she needed another blood transfusion this morning since she is anemic which means she had to be poked again. Poor baby. Other than that, not a whole lot to report. Sean and I have a class tonight on preemie care and bringing your preemie home. They only offer this class about once a month unless there are ALOT of babies due to be discharged so they offered it to us to get it out of the way. So, we'll be doing that tonight. Oh, and Emma is now wearing clothes (shirts which look more like dresses).

Elaina..hang in there! Thank you for letting us have this peek into your life and experiences. I hope the class is beneficial and that good information is given. If you need assistance finding a carbed for her or something, please let me know. I was looking into one for Tori before we knew how she was doing so I have some references. Good luck!

You sure can see that weight gain. That's great! And clothes have to make it easier to maintain her own body temp. She looks so cute in that shirt.

Keep us updated and enjoy her snuggles!
