I.V. Free!

Adele had some changes today! Her I.V. came out (I'm not sure if it came out accidentally or if they were just changing its location) and although they tried to, none of the nurses could get it back in so they decided to just leave it out and see how she does without the extra I.V. nutrition. They'll be adding supplements to her milky feedings, and will keep an eye on her blood sugar and some other things, and hopefully she will be fine and will not have to go back to the I.V.

Another change is that they have discontinued the stimulant medicine to prevent the A/B spells... it was making her heart beat too fast, so they took her off it, and as of this evening she had not had any spells. It takes a few days to be completely out of her system, so time will tell whether they come back or not. Hopefully not!

The last exciting change is that she is still gaining weight! Today she was 1450g/3lb 3.1oz, and has officially passed her birth weight! Good job Adele!!

This evening when I visited she was awake and interested in what was going on...

"Hello Mama!"


After she had her milk she got very sleepy and was happy to settle down for a nap under her suntan lights. Sweet dreams Adele!

It is early in the morning, right now. As I looked at the last picture it makes me want to cuddle back in bed and go to sleep ;)
