Elizabeth is 28 weeks and 5 days old and likes mom's milk. She has gained an ounce in the last 24 hours, which means that she is that much stronger. The doctors were getting ready to extubate her today, but didn't because she needed to be examined by an ENT. If her blood gases are also good tomorrow she will go on CPAP.
All of the tests that she got done last week came back negative (for infection) except for one, which showed that some bacteria was present in her nose. She is receiving antibiotics that seem to be helping her.
Her nurse today said that dad will be able to hold her in the afternoon. Dad held her for an hour and she fell asleep. Her grandma and granpa came to visit for a while too.
