Trav and I spent the entire day with our baby girl and her new bed! She did fantastic and we couldn't have been happier. Morgan Kate was able to maintain her body temperature all night and was moved into the bassinet early this morning. When we left tonight she was still maintaining her body temperature very well. I got to change numerous diapers today and I got to change her clothes three times - she is already getting clothes dirty. Ha! Below is a picture of her in an outfit that her great grandmother, Mammie, bought for her. Isn't she precious? Thank you so much, Mammie! We love you. There are also new pictures posted in the first slideshow to the right. I know, I know - there are lots of pictures of me and Morgan Kate and not so much of Daddy dearest. I promise he was there and we do love pictures of him, but Mommy just couldn't get enough today!
I can't remember if I posted this last night or not, but Morgan Kate is now up to 38ccs every three hours. The increased food is definitely paying off because Morgan Kate weighed in tonight at four pounds and eleven ounces. She also was weighed on the "big girl" scale (pictures in the slideshow to the right). Trav and I thought that she might lose a little weight because she had numerous poopy diapers today - I think we counted six - and because she was out of her incubator. Preemies have a hard time maintaining their body temperature and doing so burns extra calories. However, it doesn't look like either one bothered Morgan Kate!
She is still on the nasal cannula and we definitely love that! Her oxygen ranged from 33% - 39% today. The doctors would like for that number to be a lot less. She is not breathing nearly as hard or as fast as she usually does, but she is requiring more oxygen that they like to see. She has another chest x-ray on Monday and the doctors will know more. Once we can get her breathing under control we can began bottle feeding and then it will hopefully be home sweet home!!
