I just called her nurse, so I have an up to the minute report. She's doing great, taking more and more feedings. She took her 9 am, noon (I gave it to her) and 3 pm bottles, I'm assuming the whole thing b/c the nurse didn't mention how many cc's, and then she rested for her 6 pm and took her 9 pm in a bottle. She's 4 lbs 11.9 oz as of last night, up to 46 cc's each feeding and doing great. She's on day 5 of no heartrate drops, and has to go 7 days efore being allowed home. Also has to take her bottles for 48 hours straight, no gavage feeding.
they moved her to the "big kid's bay" as I like to call it, she's in the bay with all the babies that are ready to go home. Not sure if I like that or not, because as I was there today 3 babies went home, one was going home this afternoon, and one was told she could take her baby home tuesday. I WANT TO TAKE MY BABY HOME! LOL. I was very jealous, but I know it will happen soon. My patience is wearing thin though. I am encouraged by how many bottles she's taking though, she's improving constantly!
she also got a shot while I was there, her last iron shot. the nurse asked me if I wanted to leave, but I said it was OK, I can handle it. I wanted to be there to comfort her afterward, but she didn't need comforting. She only cried for like 15 seconds. By the time the nurse had disposed of the syringe and put a bandaid on her, she was fine! even the nurse asked her "Is that all??" LOL. She's a very easy baby! After that I got to feed her and hold her for quite a while, more quality time with her than I've been able to get in a while. I think I held her for almost 2 hours today, it was so nice. then I got to spend some quality time with Brendan this afternoon, he has a new game where he comes up to me and says "HI!" and I say HI back, and he cracks up and does it again. LOL. no idea why he thinks it is funny, but that's OK.
