Today is Ella's three-week birthday, and she is doing just great.
Her weight is up to 4 lb 14 oz. She moved from the isolette into an open crib a couple days ago and is maintaining her own body temperature just fine.
After two great days of taking every feeding by mouth, she was just tuckered out. They had to put her feeding tube back in yesterday (she had yanked it out the day before and they tried leaving it out). So far today, she's doing better taking her feedings by mouth.
Blood tests today for anemia and calcium/bone density came back fine.
Major goal this week is to make better progress on eating by mouth, and continue gaining weight. And her eye exam is scheduled for Friday.
Here are some new pics.
