Katherine - 1 week old

I had hoped that Katy would be home by now, but she is still in the NICU. She is slowly making progress....maybe she will be with us next weekend.

A few days ago she came off of the c-pap and went onto the cannula. And just today she had her IV taken out and was able to wear clothes and move to a crib for the first time.

In order to come home she needs to learn to feed by mouth, get off the cannula, and not have anymore apnea (she hasn't had any in 24 hours!) That doesn't sound so hard does it? Come on Katy...we know you can do it!

She has also had a low grade fever these fast few days. The doctors have checked and checked for infection though and haven't found a thing. We are all just wondering if she runs hot. She looks so funny just laying there in nothing but a diaper most of the time. All the other tiny babies are bundled up from head to toe to try to keep their temperatures up.
