The PIC is Gone
Molly's PIC line has been removed. That means she's getting all nutrients via breast milk and formula. All that's attached to her now are wires for heartbeat, breathing, and temperature as well as her nasal feeding tube. She's much easier to hold and maneuver.
Breastfeeding is going very well. Molly is taking the nipple readily now, with longer periods of sucking and swallowing. This is very encouraging for one so young to be actually breastfeeding.
We had a wonderful, full day with her today. Her feeding is at 32cc and her weight moved up to 3 lbs, 6.5 ozs. She's a "feed and grow" baby according to the nurses, which means it's just a matter of time before she's home.Posted by tat at March 7, 2004 07:45 PM
