Well I came home a day early this week for Nate end of year assembly (shhhhhh, he doesn’t know I’m going yet). It never gets easier leaving Ellie – in fact it is getting harder! I’m told she has been enjoying hugs with a student nurse this afternoon.
Not too much to report at the moment. Our current biggest dilemma is getting a longer and unbroken (stretched a few to many times) cord for Ellie’s heart rate and oxygen saturation machine…..it’s a bit nice that is our biggest problem.
I’m waiting on the gastro team to confirm whether or not Ellie would be allowed to suck on a hard rusk, it’s just small amounts of pears and apples so far. They are also coming to chat with me about the need, possible outcomes and repercussions from possible outcomes in relation to Ellie’s impedance test. We have decided we don’t want her to have the fundoplication no matter the results, so I wonder if that will impact on the necessity of the test.
During tummy time Ellie had a fabulous time tucking her knees up under her body and using every bit of energy she had to go forwards a few centimetres. Unfortunately all the effort she put into her legs meant she was only able to hold her head up briefly and intermittently. She is looking quite chubby to me again, let’s see if she can crack 5.4 kgs on Monday.
