Off Morphine

24/11/07 Had a good night until i came in this morning about 6am. No vomits all night but as soon as i get there, she vomits. And again and then a shitty nappy just in time for mummy. After the Dr rounds today we came back to find that they have turned her off morphine (Yay) hopefully she wont have any more withdrawals. And the nurse tells us that she is a candidate for the ward. If they get busy in there, she will be well enough to go to the ward. (fantastic but scary at the same time). She has 24hr 1 on 1 care here but at the ward its 6 kids to 1 nurse. So by that i think we will be at the ward before the week is out. Cant wait. We weighed her today. She now weighs 2.15kg. Lost a little bit but she has also lost the ventilator tube too. So she is going pretty good considering she isn't tolerating her milk. She is still on TPN and lipids whilst not having milk. The photo above sort of shows you how small she really is. Thats her dads hand pretty much covering her whole body and the other one is her whilst being weighed.

She is doing so good! I'm thrilled that she has been extubated. I hope she gets better at tolerating her milk soon. She has overcome so much!
