Day 7 in NICU

NICU one week later and Katie is doing well. She is trying to get all of her food from a bottle but there always seems to be 7 or 8 ml left after feeding. She is only eating 40 ml per feeding so they have to put the remainder down the tube in her nose.

Katie’s only mild setback is that she has been unable to keep her body temperature up. She is hovering around 96-97°F. They have begun fortifieing Katie’s milk to be sure that she gets enough caleries. This may help her get her temperature up. They have moved her from the window because it was a little drafty over there. Katie is under enough blankets for a trip to Poland in the winter. The little bundle in her isolette is more blanket than baby.
