So Ellie’s steroids are working, yay! The pressure on her CPAP was reduced and by this afternoon she wasn’t requiring any oxygen. Go Ellie! I had a few comments from nurses today, or more heads shakes and wows – mostly the ones that looked after her a few weeks ago when she was really sick.
Ellie’s development of clutching her fists and swinging her arms around is progressing very well – so well she ripped her cannula out last night as they were trying to tape it down more securely. Her new cannula and little arm is now covered in brown tape from fingers to elbow. They are hoping this one lasts til tomorrow evening because that is when she is due her last dose of antibiotics!
I got to have two very nice cuddle sessions today. One the girls didn’t want a bar of each other and then next trying to get as close as possible, but being defeated by Ellie’s snorkel.
