Happy Birthday to my mom today! Juliana is doing great this afternoon. We had lunch with our friend Jim and introduced him to her today. Her respirator has been turned down again to 24 and her fentanyl is down to 5. She is tolerating all of this really well. There is some expectation that she will be able to move off of the ventilator and into a bi-phasic CPAP within a week or so. This will make it much easier to take her out of her isolette and her positioning will be much less precarious. We will be taught how to take her out on our own, which means much more cuddle time. I spent an hour and a half with her on my chest this afternoon. She got very comfortable quickly, but I could occasionally feel her little tongue on my chest. She loves to chew on her tube! The other interesting news is that she is over 2 lbs in weight today. Some of that may be a little excess liquid, but it is clear that she is getting bigger fast. The milk that they have given her throughout today has stayed down, so digestion must be starting up. We are having a good day.
