Elizabeth was extubated this afternoon and seems to be feeling well. The ENT team had a look down her trachea and saw some irritation. She also had a few apnia spells during which her heart rate dropped below 100, but she was able to come up on her own, so her nurse was not too concerned. This could be due to the extubation earlier or being fed (preemies get reflux). Her feeding tube is through her mouth instead of her little nose and that's too tempting for her and she is playing with it.
Elizabeth is getting 5 cc's of milk and seems to be enjoying it. She is sporting a very small Pampers diaper that makes her look like a sumo wrestler.
She settled herself to sleep around 20:45, but would occasionally chew on the feeding tube.
