I am so proud of Grace! She is doing so well! She is tolerating her feeds with no problems and I think her stomach may be starting to work, because she is not putting out much bile at all out of her tube! She is tolerating her feeds so well that they went from increasing them every 12 hours to every 8 and then every 6! She is almost halfway to full feeds now! The pressure for me to up my production is on! She has been sprinting and doing very well with it, she doesn't even seem to notice anything is different! She even threw a huge fit today while sprinting and was able to maintain her sats. We are really hoping for extubation very soon. They have her on antibiotics due to the pseudomonas and want her to have a little more of the course done before they extubate. They are still weaning her sedation and she is still doing well. She had been being given TPN and lipids for the last 2 months since she couldn't eat and tonight her TPN will run out and not be replaced! She is off lipids too, and may still get some here and there but she is well on her way to getting everyting she needs from breastmilk!
She is doing very well and I am so happy with the progress she is making!
Thank you all for your prayers and keep them coming!
