update

By the way Emily is total over her infection although she is still finishing up her course of antibiotics.
Nanu and Claire are feeling much better but still not 100%.
I went to my doctor today about this wheezy cough I've had for weeks. He gave me an inhaler. I had one a couple of years ago for the same thing.
Tomorrow I have a follow-up with the obstetrician.

Emily is doing well. She is taking 7cc of formula per meal. She weighs 1500 grams. She is still on 1 liter air through the cannula. They increased her dose of lasix due to her weight gain. The nurse said today that her urine output isn't as much as they like to see. (She may dip below 1500 grams again if she has been retaining water.)
I didn't meet the new doctor today. I will make a point of tracking her down tomorrow.

Claire asks me to show her pictures of baby Luke, baby Emily and Kate almost daily.
Today she repeated something she said on Sunday, "Kate is gorgeous." Kate had fun accessories on Sunday which Claire definitely appreciated. They also shared a couple of very cute hugs.

Claire also loves looking through her photo album filled with pictures of relatives in Oklahoma. She remembers everyones names.

Thanks to everyone who has been leaving comments on the blog. I feel encouraged.

I'm praying that you get to breastfeed soon.

Love you all,

I am looking forward to hearing the news about your breast milk. I don't think I understand what exactly was wrong with it. Like where did the contamination begin? Externally on the breast, or something internal?? Whose family lives in Oklahoma? My Nana and Auntie are outside of Tulsa. We are busy as bees. I even rode Hank ALONE for the 2nd time today. He was hollering for the herd. A little nervewracking. Am so glad you have this site. I think about you and the babies every day. xoxo Linda

So glad Nanu and Claire are feeling better! I love Claire's wonderful use of vocabulary words from book she is read. Thanks for all your regular updates, Jen. Love to all of you and continued prayers! Nanna
