Family day 2nd day in a row.
Ellie is looking really good at the moment. The consultant this week is tweaking her vitamins and changing her feeds so that she stops putting on ‘preemie’ weight and just starts going. The thought is the extra fluid she is getting and the fat she is developing could hinder her breathing. She is better off if she just grows and puts on weight in relation to her height. Her CPAP was reduce a few days a go and she coped really well. They are going to reduce it again tomorrow and see how she goes.
I’ve been saying it for a few days now but Ellie looks great at the moment, I’d say she is probably the healthiest she has ever been too, aside from not being able to breath.
There is also talk of Ellie moving to the Children’s hospital as early as Monday.
