June 18 - 2 Months Old

At two months old and 1490 grams (3 lbs, 5 oz), Veronica is continuing to do well.  Her oxygen requirement has remained at or just above 21%  for the past few days.  (21% is room air.) We're hoping by this time next week she will have started the process of weaning off of CPAP.  This will be a significant step towards coming home.  And we can't wait to see more of her face and hold her without all of the CPAP prongs and tubing.  And I know she'll be happy - it's clear she doesn't like the prongs in her nose as she takes every opportunity to try to get them out.       

Here are some pics from my visit today.  Her belly is actually starting to look a little chunky :)
