Back on Track

I think we are back on track now and moving in the right direction.  I'm not sure that we ever really even took a step backwards.  It sure felt that way, but I think it was just a pause, or a slowing down to give Veronica a chance to catch her breath (no pun intended).  We have to remember to move at Veronica's pace and that slow and steady is a good thing. 

Veronica has been trialing off CPAP today and has been off for 10 hours and is still going strong.  She is tolerating her PO feeds quite nicely and generally is able to finish her entire 50 ml bottle.  Sometimes she still gets too tired to finish and the remainder of her milk is put through her OG tube.  But today, Veronica's nurse thought it would be a good idea to remove the tube since she is able to finish the majority of her bottles.  Apparently the doctor agreed, so out came the tube.  I'm not sure if this is permanent or not - but for now, we'll take it!  I think today was the first time we've ever seen her with NOTHING attached to her face.  She looked amazing!!

Trying out her car seat for the first time. 


  1. Concur! She is so beautiful. Better days ahead, Marcie.

  2. God bless her, she is so adorable! That first shot in her swaddle is extra lovable!!
