Six Weeks

Blair's oxygen level stayed mostly in the 25% - 30% range Wednesday, which is good. She had good stats on 25% while I was there this evening. Dr. Connor thinks we might be able to go home without oxygen, so they will continue to try to wean her off of it. Mark, one of the respiratory therapists, is there tonight, and all the babies seem to straighten up when he's on duty! I never know what new settings of Blair's I'm going to find the morning after Mark has been there -- it's usually good though!

The doctor ended up changing her feeding schedule this morning, so now Blair gets as much as she wants every four hours.
She drank 3 ounces this evening. She drinks a bottle in no time. Eating is not a problem for this child! She weighed 6 lb 6 oz tonight.

Blair is six weeks old today. She is staying awake more now. She surveys all the movement and lights all around the room. She's gotten a bit spoiled though and lightly coughs when she wants attention! I think she deserves some spoiling! The nurses certainly don't mind helping. They got the nursery swing out for her today! They said she enjoyed it.

Hey Ashlee,
My mind spins when I think of that BEAUTIFUL nursery and all the spoiling that's bound to take place in your home sometime VERY soon.
God bless you all is my prayer,
Jennifer
