Juliana is starting off the new year well. Her feeds are now 11 ml/hr, and she is doing very well on her 3-hour nasal canula trials. Hopefully those will continue to get longer and she can get off the CPAP permanently soon. She is digesting all of her milk and really using it to help her grow. Today she graduates into a different kind of isolette, one for babies who aren’t as sick. Although we still have some worries, she is definitely out of the acute phase of her care and is making steady progress every day.
The year 2009 had many ups and downs for the Payne family, and we are happy to begin anew today. Thanks so much to each of you who has been following the blog and offering your support in various ways. We are blessed.
