It has been over three weeks since Elizabeth came home and she is doing amazingly well. When she was weighed last weeks she was 6 pounds and 4 ounces (2.835 kilograms). At the Growth and Development clinic that Elizabeth attended on Thursday, the dietician said that her weight gain was exceptional. She placed in the tenth percentile on the growth chart. Her height was in the fifth percentile at 20 inches (...Have you met her mother?).
The eye doctor said that her eyes are improving which is great since her favourite past-time is staring in the mirror.
The head ultrasound showed ruminants of old brain bleeds that are slowly being absorbed, nothing new.
Elizabeth is still on oxygen, but only on half of what she was getting when she first came home. She still reminds her parents that she is a preemie by having the occasional apnea or Brady spell, but they also seems to get less frequent.
She has lots of awake times and loves snuggling. Yesterday she went for another walk outside with her mom and Laurie.
