It's 13:37 on Sunday afternoon and Elizabeth has the hick-ups, but she doesn't seem too bothered. She is now getting 9 ccs and is slowly starting to gain weight. She was 820 grams at 9 o'clock last night.
She is still on CPAP!
On Friday she was very pale and sleepy. She was getting a lot of secretions from her nose and had to be suctioned almost every half hour. Yesterday her doctor ordered a blood transfusion. Luckily her dad's blood was available, so Elizabeth got 12 cc's. Within minutes of her transfusion her colour improved. She is also getting antibiotics that seems to be helping with the infection. Her secretions have decreased, making it easier for her to breathe.
