From Jon  "[Yesterday's ultrasound] didn't report too much that we didn't already know. There was a little fluid in her abdomen on that side, so I wasn't expecting much, but a fair bit came out last night, I think 100 mls in the last three drains. The fluid near her lungs is almost gone. Her stomach measurement is down a little, but the accuracy doesn't seem to be great. They are about to measure again once she pees from the lasix. They've turned her oxygen down to 1/4L.

They are going to start food through her today.

So, lots of good news."

Her stomach measurement this morning was even less. The nurse has turned off the oxygen. While she was awake, it was perfect. Now she is asleep and it is down to 96, which is still good. We had a start and stop and start again with the feeds because Grace threw up her ursodial. But so far, as she's asleep, it's been fine.

The diaper change and measurement and weight were a lot of movement for her, so there was a lot of coughing and some vomit. 

She asked me to hold her, but then changed her mind, so I am sitting by the crib holding her hand.

Even since I posted this, she has been doing even better. Sitting up, talking, asking to be in my lap, asking for water and ice cream. (She still only looks at it, but it's a step.) The doctors are happy with her progress. Her ANC today was 1200!
