Less lines...

My excitement for the day? JAYCIE GOT HER IV OUT! She is no longer getting TPN (nutrition) threw IV. She takes all her feedings (breastmilk) threw her NG (tube threw her nose)! YAY! So as long as she doesnt get an infection or other set backs that would require an IV, shes done for good on that!


She gained some weight 70g, so she is about 3lbs 11oz again. GO BABY GIRL!

Yesterday she only had two heart drops and they only went to the 80's, rather than the 40's she was doing before. Today her "TEAM" is going to decide if they are going to do an ultrasound of the head to check for bleeds and her heart for her murmur.


Otherwise she is just doing great. She is sucking her binki better now. Once she can suck it and keep it in her mouth, and NOT drop any heart rates or sats. They will let her try to go to the breast for non-nutritive sucking. Which will be sucking and getting no milk (we have to coordinate a suck before we throw in her learning to swallow (we all take it for granted, sucking, breathing, swallowing, all at once)


Happy 1 week old Jaycie

She's so precious. I'm so glad she is doing so well . You are such a wonderful mother. I hope jaycie continues to keep getting stronger and stronger everyday. She's definitely got a strong spirit. This is so special that you have documented her journey since the day she entered the world. What a great family record you are keeping.
