Emily has reached almost all her milestones. She is maintaining her temperature, she is over 1800 grams, she is on stable meds, she has no IV, she is breathing on her own.
She just needs to be able to eat by mouth and gain weight. I am so eager for her to learn to breastfeed and to be able to wake up and nurse 8 times a day. So far she can do 3 times a day but she isn't getting very much milk per nursing session.

Sorry to hear about the anemia, but hopefully that too will be behind you shortly.

I am glad nursing is going well. I am sure it will improve with time, but the wait must be agonizing.
We are thinking of you daily.

Love, Nanu and Papa
