Quick Update!

As of this morning, Katie is up to 820 grams (1 pound, 13 ounces). They have moved her off the oscillator and back to the ventilator. Our last update today (around 1pm), she was down to 28% oxygen (normal air we all breathe is 21%).

They're taking her down to get a barium x-ray so they can see what is going on in her esophagus. As long as everything is where it's supposed to be, they'll attempt to put her feeding tube back in, and presumably start feedings shortly afterwards. It's been a little over a week since their last attempt, so we're hoping that her digestive system is ready for food now!

She was having some problems keeping her urine output regulated, but over the last two days, she has been peeing like normal. We have a theory that she saves it up just to keep us on our toes!
