Let them eat cake!
Emma continues to grow every day with a weight last night of 5lb 8oz!!! The concerning part is all the swelling. It seems like whenever she gains 2-3 oz in one day a lot of it is fluid retention and it is unclear why she is retaining fluid...the plan is to do some additional lab work this am to find out what's going on. We are still learning to eat from the bottle... some feedings she does absolutely fabulous with no problems at all and then others she only will take 1/4 or 1/2 of what she needs to be eating. Her oxygen remains at 3/4 of a liter. She passed her hearing screen today and her eye exam showed nothing new, still stage 1 in zone 2 of both eyes, which basically means no worries. They look so good we are gonna go 2 weeks this time instead of the every week schedule we have been on. So the biggest hurtle right now is her endurance with her meals!!! Otherwise we are looking great!
