Everything in Moderation

We returned a bit early from our weekend in Wildwood so Ken could see Andrea before the week's insanity hit. This was the first time we'd seen her in the SCN, and she looks so good! Unfortunately, I forgot to bring a camera, so no picture today.

Andrea's weight is up to 2085 grams (4 pounds, 9.5 ounces). She's been eating so much that the doctors are modifying "feed on demand". She still gets fed every four hours, but she's being limited to no more than 50 ml. Andrea was showing some signs of edema, so we're trying to slow her down a little.

Andrea is still on nasal cannula today. She had some breaks yesterday, but so far is not breathing well enough to be completely on her own.

The weekend was great, but I'm wiped out. My mom calls it beach fatigue. I'll try to write more tomorrow.

"The greater the difficulty the more glory in surmounting it. Skillful pilots gain their reputation from storms and tempests."
