Thursday, October 24, 2013 Update

 Today Lenah is exactly 6 weeks old.  She was pretty irritable and restless through the night and this morning.  She was given ativan in the morning and has been calm and resting throughout the day while I have been here. Her white cell count was up this morning, but they aren't sure why. Her belly is measuring a little bigger today as well. She had an abdominal ultrasound and everything looked okay.  They are considering doing an abdominal cat scan tomorrow.  They have been doing breathing trials and weaning her off of the ventilator and they are taking things slow.  She is still on antibiotics and milrinone.  Her heart rate, blood pressure, and respiration rate have all been good. She is still being given IV nutrition.  Her weight is back up to her birth weight.  She had actually lost weight and was below her birth weight for a while. She has definitely grown longer. Here are her pictures from today.
