Today her skin was less of that new born "I just spent 8 months in a bathtub" shriveled up look.
She is gaining weight. She now weighs 4 lbs 4.8 oz. Either we are getting used to what she looks like, or she is filling out some.
Her platelet count was low today. They are rerunning the test, and if it is still low then they will request a transfusion. O's veins don't like to give blood or take IV's so it takes a team of nurses and about an hour before they get the job done. Our brave little sweetheart usually falls asleep during the process. After it is all done, she is exhausted.
She is taking more formula from the bottle and less IV nutrition. When she has been exhausted by the medical team, they will give her a feeding by the tube.
Mama O is getting really good and quick at changing a diaper through the little holes in her incubator.
Thanks to everyone for their care, concern, support and prayers! It means so much!
(We learned today that for the time being no one but us (and birth-mom) can visit her. It gets lonely for us in NICU, but this is adoption and we just say Yes and Thank you.)
