Day full of CHECKS off the list!

Well not too much to report today! But I knew lots of people would be checking in for the next update, so I thought I should write something atleast! So lets see......

She had her eyes checked again today and he said they are looking as normal as he would like and healing very well! CHECK!

She ripped her feeding tube out about 1:20am Tuesday so they havent had it put back in since! no feeding tube..CHECK!

She has been taking all of her feedings....CHECK! Today she is starting to poop out tho, so I will be curious to see if they caved and put her tube back in. Chris said last night "Not on my watch" HEHE!

Brielles ride home at hospital....CHECK! Felt so weird to carry a carseat!!!

Got Dr Abe on board to discharge her next week CHECK!

Dr Abe reduced her calories to 22 cal which is what she will go home on CHECK! Now she has to eat 44ML! CHUNKER!

Got a bath tonight CHECK! She was alittle more relaxed this one not as edgy. But you can tell shes getting older and is getting a voice! OH NO! Shes been listening to her noisy neighbors and I told her not too! Guess shes not going to be a good listener :)

She is having a ECHO on her heart tomorrow and another blood gas and Dr abe is going to try to go down on her oxygen liters so he can get her to 100% oxygen soon. He said that monday he wants us to do the monitor training that we will be bringing her home on. We will need to know how to work the oxygen tanks and monitors and what medicine she will need to take and times etc. We need to take CPR yet before we bring her home. So we have quite a few more CHECKS to put on the list but we are getting there! 7 is enough for today! :) She weighed in at 5lbs 1.2oz!


  1. Check Check Check!!!! Now it's time to CHECK HER OUT of there and CHECK HER INTO HER NEW HOME so she can CHECK OUT HER NEW ROOM!!!! This is sooooo exciting!!! See you tomorrow my baby girl:) One more day closer to bringing her home! Love you guys!

  2. Amber - that is so good to hear that she is just about out the door and on her way home.

  3. Say adiós, Brielle!! You're outta there! Blow 'em all kisses and hit the road. Way to go. Josh & Amber--I can feel the excitment!!! And it feels GOOD!!!!
