NICU Day 4: May 13th, 2014

Little Miss Emily continues to do amazing things!

She is now barely on oxygen…just needs a little extra to help her remember to breath consistently, but the level is incredibly low, which is great! Blood work from today came back really good; all she needs is a little extra iron, but all other numbers look good. Her bilirubin levels are a bit high, but not enough to be concerned about yet (they’re still monitoring these numbers- if they go up too high, Emily will be put under blue “bili” lights, to help her body keep from getting jaundice, etc.).

Both grandma’s got to hold Emily for the first time today!
