A belated update

Sorry for the belated update!

BabyBug is doing well and recovering quickly from her Mic-Key button placement surgery. She got the breathing tube removed yesterday, and the nasal cannula came off around noon today. She was having some trouble breathing still so they restarted her Lasix early, but other than that she seems to be doing well. They took out the IV in her hand (the boxing glove) but she still has the one in her foot (the snowshoe). Leah is already on full feeds again, and they are no longer fortifying her milk with cow’s milk formula, so she is exclusively on breast milk. Yay! She is still pretty fussy, especially as it gets closer to her feeding time. We’ll see how she does over the next couple of days!

Leah has lost a little bit of weight – she was up to 5 lbs 13 oz but now she’s at 5 lbs and just under 10oz. Hopefully she will gain it back soon!

BabyBug yesterday, cute as ever. If you look closely at her blanket you might see the ladybugs (although they might not be visible in this pic). LadyBugs for LeahBug!!

Leah with her cousin Abby! I love this because Leah looks like she is trying to smile for the camera.

This is a photo from Katrin, an Instagram friend in Russia. She and her baby sent this sweet message to Leah while she was still all wired up and recovering from her little surgery. I love that there are people all over the world who care about Leah and follow her progress. Thank you!!!
