Day 42

Elena is stable. She has sort of hit a plateau where she is on the CPAP requiring very little oxygen, but it is a leap for her to be room oxygen (21%) and then off CPAP. She is getting fed breastmilk and tolerating it pretty well. Considering where she was, she is doing well. She is also becoming a little fatty which is so exciting- she's about 3.5 pounds of lovin'. I am able to hold Elena on a daily basis now which is great for the both us. It gives me immense satisfaction to have her in my arms and will hopefully accelerate her healing. I am happy about where she is but want her to get off the CPAP sooner than later.

  1. I'm so happy to hear that you get to hold her now and that she's gaining weight! Thanks for posting photos, she's beautiful.
