Veronica has been in the NICU for 54 days but it feels more like 154. I'm hoping we are past the half way mark but its impossible to know at this point when she will be discharged. And even after 53 days, she is still the smallest baby in the NICU. But she continues to do well and is getting closer to the big "3". At her last weigh in she was 1280 grams which is the equivalent of 2 lbs, 13 oz. So it should only be a few more days and we'll be able to celebrate another milestone.
There haven't been any major changes to her care and we don't anticipate there being any in the near future. Sometimes it feels like the progress is slow but then we look back on her first day of life and we remember how far she has come.
