I think Andrea's nurses have a good time dressing her. Having a son already, I can attest to the fact that it's more fun picking out girls' clothes than boys'. Andrea has six or 7 outfits, most with matching hats and socks, and many that coordinate with her blankets. Today's nurse made sure that Andrea was completely tricked out in matching shirt/pants/hat/socks/blankets, right down to the one covering the crib mattress! You can see in the picture that Andrea is happy enough with her "look" to give us a small smile.

All is the same today as yesterday. Andrea lost 30 grams, most probably due to the Lasix, which is a diuretic. I think tomorrow is the last day for that. Her breathing seemed somewhat better today - she is still on 1 liter of 28% oxygen, but didn't need additional support while eating, even during nursing.

Hopefully the new rotation of doctors will have some news to share tomorrow. Also, our favorite nurse is back, which is always the best way to get information. She makes sure we know exactly what's going on.
