This Week

This week has gone by a bit more quickly than the last two. I think this is a good sign.
We are still at UCLA Med Ctr in Westwood and feeling more comfortable with it. The plan is still to transfer Clair back to Santa Monica once they have room.

This evening they began to give Claire breastmilk again. Hurray! Hopefully her intestines will tolerate it better this time.

Claire broke the 3 pound mark yesterday and today is up to 3 lbs 2 oz. Thanks be to God.

She is due for another ultrasound in the next few days (But they usually don't do them on weekends... we'll keep you posted.)

Claire has been on antibiotics because her white blood cell count is high which usually means there is an infection. They can't find any specific infection and she doesn't behave as though she were sick. The concern is that there may be some infection at the site of the hemorrhage... so they had extended the course of antibiotics beyond the initial schedule. But they plan to stop on Saturday and see what happens.
