It was a Mummy and Ellie day today.
Ellie is looking well, she still really likes the pressure the CPAP provides but it getting bigger and stronger everyday. She was pretty tired today, but they did finally get her feeding tube in the correct place. So far she is a little grumpy about getting her feed over 3 hours instead of in 15-20 minutes, but she is allowed a little squirt of milk in her mouth when she wakes up for her regular 3 hourly feeds. They are hoping the continuous feeds will settle her stomach down, ease her reflux and prevent any more vomiting episodes from holding her back.
Ellie hasn’t been weighed today yet, but I am anticipating another gain, until tomorrow……..
We read some stories and had some hugs while Ellie dozed, the 4 hours I was there seemed to go very quickly today.
PS Aunty Julia you’ll be happy the kiddies let me get 3 nails done last night, aiming for another 3 tonight x
