no more meds

I was happy to hear that Claire is off all medications. Funny how the nurse mentioned it so off-handedly--in response to my question about when would she go off antibiotics. This was Sunday that I found out, and apparently Claire is actually scheduled to have her "central line" removed this week. This is very exciting.
Claire responded by spitting up, precision-aiming at the small opening between her blanket so that it dribbled down her neck and chest. Silly me, should have had a diaper or wipe tucked in at the ready.

The next day, we weighed her, and she is at an all-time high of about 1680 grams. I say about because we got to observe the weighing process and it is fairly in-exact. She was weighed 3 times, and there was a 75 gram variance. Anyway, the general trend is up, so it is good to know that she is gaining weight again. The slight plateau/dip was caused by her going off feeds for the MRI/MRV and transfer to Santa Monica.

I am especially excited that she is off caffeine. Her heart and lungs seems to be doing fine without it.
