She has grown so much! As we posted yesterday, Suzie was able to come off of oxygen on Wednesday morning. This was a very exciting day for us, as we were prepared for her to have to come home on oxygen. There is still a possibility that she would have to go back on it, but the fact that she has been off of it for two full days now is very encouraging. Sometimes she gets so fatigued from eating that she requires a little help from the blow-by, but even that has been very infrequent.
Also, she now can take two bottles in a row, but will be a little too tired for a third bottle. She has come so far in the past week and a half with her feeds. A week and a half ago she drank her first full bottle for the first time and now she can take 6 full bottles a day, so we are seeing tremendous progress with our little girl! She also is awake for a lot longer in the day so we are having so much fun with her.
The doctor still won’t give us any estimate as to when we can expect our little girl to come home with us, but our Occupational Therapist warned us that they might not let us know until the day before she comes home! She told us to expect that she might be able to come home in the next week or two. :)
We praise God every day for his kindness to us. Suzie is truly a constant reminder to us of how gracious the Lord is and how He gives us far more than we deserve. We desire to live every day in complete surrender to the Lord, always aware of His constant faithfulness.
