We could hardly believe it! Before everyone starts dancing around their room, office, coffee shop, or wherever else you might be, this is just a test to see how she does. She may very well be back on some form of oxygen by the time we get back tonight. But she was doing wonderfully so far and was great the whole time we where there, including through some crying while we took her temperature and changed her diaper and through hiccups while Kit held her.
If she does start to have trouble, they will put her on the nasal cannula. And if that doesn't help enough, she'll go back on CPAP. But at least for our visit this afternoon she was free of tubes in her nose and of her hat and chin strap. SHE'S SO BEAUTIFUL!!!
For anyone who is trying to tell, her hair is Kit's hair color. She seems to also have his hairline, but we'll see. Both Kit and I had white blonde hair as small children so it'll be interesting to see what color Ellie's hair ends up being.
Floating in the sleeper last night's nurse, Lynn, had put her in. (This one isn't ours but Lynn put her in it since it was easier to put on with the CPAP on.)
