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.

Wow! She is improving. Little lizzy is gulping the food back now. It won't be long and she'll be on pints. Then there will be no stopping her.

Looking forward to updates and keeping track of how she is doing.

All the best to the three of you!

Dear Angie, Ivan & Elizabeth
I am so happy to read about Elizabeth's progress, I am sure my sister Susan is her guardian angel and therefore I have no doubts she is in good hands.
I enjoy reading of her journey and wish you all good health and best wishes,
Aunt Judy

Hi Angie, Ivan and welcome Elizabeth Ann:

Congratulations on your beautiful little girl. I love the pictures of her, especially the one where she is lying on her arm. Too cute! Jeff says she's a " real dolly."

Hope you are doing well and taking care of yourselves. The website was a wonderful idea. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
