So, just as we "published" yesterday's post, we called to get an update on Lucille and as of last night she she went up again to 2165 grams (4 lbs 12.4 oz, 80 more grams). Today, she has had a day filled with poop and has already gone through two of her new outfits (one we haven't gotten to see on her yet) and STILL went up another 25 oz and is at 2190 grams making her a beautiful 4 lbs, 13 oz! Lucie Bear's feeding is still at 40 mLs every three hours. Lucie has been on nasal SPONT for 7 hours and nasal SIMV for 5 hours every shift, so they have increased her an hour to see how she does. So all in all Lucie Pie has had another great day.
Please continue to pray for strength, rest and stamina as it is only Monday and I already feel exhausted. We are starting to look into parenting books and blogs. If anyone has or knows of any easy reads on helpful parenting books or websites, please let us know. I can't believe it's March already and I'm trying to keep my "one day at a time" mentality but it's tough knowing we are a couple days from being a month away from her due date. Please pray that we would keep up the baby steps. We have some pictures from tonight's visit, I hope you all enjoy them... but seriously, let us know about any good books. G'night!
Worn out and bursting at the seams
