Skyla's due date today, first bath, clothing and EBM




21/11/07 What a day for skyla today. Today was the day she was due to be born. She is 39 days old today. Look how far my little princess has come. Six weeks early, Two major operations, two infections, Five blood transfusions and extubated, all before her due date. What a fighter she is. You are so brave my darling girl. You were definately meant to be here with us. We love you so much darlin. Wont be long now and we will be off to the ward then home so we can be a real family. We had our first bath today. Skyla wasnt too impressed. Cried a bit but not too bad. I then got to put a dress on her. She looked so cute. It was actually a top but for her its a dress as she is still very small. We started back on breast milk today 1ml per hour. We just got to take it slow. Today she was on cpap (the mask) for 4hrs then off for a couple of hours. We got to be careful she doesnt wear herself out otherwise we may have t intubate again. Mind you she is doing really really well. Without any oxygen help her sats are pretty much staying on 100% most of the time. Tomorrow they are gonna try her without the mask so we will see how she goes.
