March for Babies

Amazing

Drinking from a bottle twice a day. Gavage (tube) feedings the rest of the time.
 
Off oxygen except for a little "blow by" when she eats or gets a little tired and forgets to breathe.
 
3 pounds 11 ounces.
 
"Very slight beginnings of Stage 1 Retinopathy of Prematurity" according to the eye doctor yesterday.  Being off the oxygen and gaining weight will help this and we suspect she will not have much if any trouble with it in the future.
 
I am blown away by the progress she has made in the last two weeks.  Crazy amazing kind of good that leaves me anxiously waiting for the other shoe to drop.

I'm so glad she's doing so well. I've been following your blog since she was born, I was so worried for her at first!

Way to go, Azure! Yeah! Sounds like that baby girl of yours has decided to kick it into high gear and get ready to come HOME.

No other shoe. No other shoe. No other shoe.
