NICU Day 47

Baby Girl had another day of eating and growing on day 47.  She gained 20 grams and didn't have many As and Bs.  The NICU in general was pretty stressed again yesterday with 5 new babies coming in.  We had a neighbor again for a little while, but they were able to get a room cleared out so he could be with his twin instead of in with us.  Listening to an admitting process was interesting.  We had a good cuddle and Baby Girl stayed at 21% oxygen the whole time.  I'm learning that she wriggles into a position that compromises her airway, so I'm getting better about catching on and adjusting her position.
