Arts & Crafts

Virginia and her nurses completed their first arts & crafts project. I think we have a budding artist on our hands ;)

Virginia has a a good few days! She is up to 1lb 14oz and 13.75 inches long. The doctors are very impressed with how well her feedings have been going and anticipate that she will continue to steadily gain weight. Virginia had been on diuretics to help clear her lungs of excess fluid, but she started to show higher than normal potassium and creatinine levels. We are hopeful that she either does well off of the diuretics or that they are able to find a dosage level that her body will be able to handle well. Because of this, they have not changed any of her ventilator settings in a few days. Once her levels normalize (hopefully by tomorrow) they will consider lowering her settings again. We are so thankful that she is doing so well and that we are dealing with relatively minor setbacks like this.
