Baby Bella Day 46

What a great little girl!! She has yet to cry in front of daddy! Today she was quite calm most of the day. She is taking her feeds well, even with the fortifier, and is having nearly no residuals. She did lose a little weight but she has been peeing and pooping quite a bit lately. She is having one apnea or brady session each day, which is still scary, but since she is breathing so well(her O2 levels are around room air 21-22%) we are less concerned about these episodes. She had a very quiet and boring day, even the doctors said they are pleased with her progress and don't have much to say. She is getting her PIC line out tomorrow or Thursday and is on full feeds with fortifier. We are very excited about her progress and the "boring" days are nice! We need lots of those for the next month, then she has to have the follow up to the laparodomy. That will hopefully be the last major hurtle before she's discharged. Well I am going to bed, thank you all for your prayers and love!!

Here are some pictures of the baby girl!! And one of mommy making a face at me!

I've been so happy to see this week's updates. I'm glad that Bella's getting some of the rest she so deserves, and hopefully you guys are, too!
