Ten Weeks, Two Days Old

HPIM1359 HPIM1364
Emily now weighs 1320 grams (2 lbs, 15 oz)! She has almost tripled her birth weight!

The settings on her ventilator were slightly increased today and she is now getting 50 breaths per minute from the machine, but her lungs are apparently sounding better. One of her primaries was on tonight and said that Emily’s lungs sounded like a different baby’s. The doctors still plan to try her on a CPAP if she takes out her breathing tube tonight.

Emily really enjoyed being held by her Mommy tonight. We were able to catch video of her smiling while Jennifer was singing to her. (Somehow, taking pictures of her with her eyes open or smiling is rather difficult.)
