Blessings for 09.10.08
1. Morgan Kate's feedings have been increased to 8.1 cc's. She is actually getting 8.1 cc's every hour for six hours straight and then she is off the feeding tube for two hours. Which means that in six hours she is getting 48.6 cc's - equivalent to an ounce and a half. Therefore, in a day she is getting almost 5 ounces total. (As most of you know, I am not the best person in math so my numbers could be off SLIGHTLY.)
2. Morgan Kate came off of all IV fluids today and they were even able to take the Broviac out. The surgeon came in around 2:30 this afternoon to remove it and it only took about five minutes. Of course mommy here had to leave the room - I can't handle things like that. The surgeon said that she did very well. She amazes me with her bravery and courage! Unfortunately, there was some moisture under the bandage which caused some yeast to grow on the skin of her leg. They are treating this with a cream and say that it shouldn't be a problem. Please pray that this goes away quickly!
3. Our big girl is even bigger tonight - Morgan Kate weighed in at 2 lbs and 1 oz. She is growing bigger and bigger each and every day.
4. I got to hold her for about an hour today. I absolutely LOVE kangarooing with her, but I can't ever see her face. Today I asked if it would be okay to just hold her in my arms and the nurse said this was perfectly fine. I sat there for the entire hour just looking at her in awe. I have to agree with many of you....she does look a lot like her daddy, but I do think she has my nose!
