I love starting these out with "Ella continues to improve" :) This morning I arrived to find her without the oxygen in her nose and UA in her belly and wearing a shirt (or something resembling it) and I was able to hold and feed her for nearly an hour. She must have known that I was late for work, because she took most of that time feeding...I'm sure it won't be the last time she makes me late. This was also the first time that she was able to accept 100% milk (no formula) and hopefully that will continue. They also plan to put her in an open crib later today, as she continues to maintain her own body temp.
She does still have the IV in her hand and will continue to need it for the antibiotics - she's also receiving some nutrients through it as well.
I know I sound like a broken record, but your prayers work and we ask that you please continue.
Thank you all for your support.-Adam
