7/22/2010 Update

Her weight is down to 1 pound 3.4 ounces at the beginning of the week.  All of her edema has gone away, she looks much thinner and sicker. It broke our hearts to see her frail body with all the tubes in her mouth.  By the 25th, she is on full feedings and  gaining about 1/2 ounce daily. by the end of the week, Isabella's on a new ventilator and taking some breaths on her own.*
  • ductus arteriosus is still open. Small heart murmur found but expected to close on its own.
  • up to 1 pound 6.2 ounces by the end of the week! Way to go baby girl! :) 
  • Blood Oxygen saturation- 36-38 (ideal is 15)
