Update, with Pics and Video :)

Katie is up to 4 pounds, 9 ounces! She is tolerating her 36ml feeds well. They increased the duration of her feeds from 2 hours to 1.5 hours. They are still every 3 hours.

They are also weaning her from her isolette! She is all bundled up like a baby burrito. I got lots of snuggle time today.

Due to her prematurity and having to be on oxygen, Katie has developed ROP. I'll let you google it for more details. Basically, it causes the blood vessels in her retinas to grow erratically. They gave her a shot of medicine Sunday that is supposed to fix it. Her next follow up is Thursday.

She also got her first round of vaccinations yesterday! She has a little chubby sore leg.

Also yesterday was her follow up head ultrasound. They reported that her IVH had resolved and there was no new bleeding!

Overall, she is doing FANTASTIC! She has a portable CD player in her room that is playing Beatles Rock-a-Bye songs :).

Here's another video of her enjoying her pacifier:
