Hello from the NICU!
K is still not eating as well as they would like her to, hence the feeding tube in her nose (which she HATES and pulled out last night), but this is more of a premie thing than anything else. She takes about 10-15 ml a feed, and then she passes out.
But beyond the eating, she's showing huge signs of improvement. If she continues the way she's going over the next 24-48 hours, they will most likely begin decreasing her morphine levels. This will take several weeks as it's a gradual process, but it means that she's on track to be released within the 6 week time frame they gave us.
I moved into her room yesterday afternoon. I will stay full time and Joey will come out on the weekends. The NICU nurses are incredible, which is making up for the times that the hospital staff has been less than understanding about the adoption situation and everything that comes with it.
Thank you all for your congratulations, and please continue to send thoughts and prayers for K - that she continues to get better and that we can take her home soon.
