Quick Update - mostly medical stuff

The short update is that Evangelynn is doing about the same as yesterday. The neonatologist today said he expects her to resolve her breathing problems in 3-5 days, but that it could take as long as a week or more. This is day three so only time will tell. Her IV came out last night and they tried her other arm with no success. Now her IV is in her head and she has become a candidate for a PICC line. A PICC line would prevent them from having to stick her ever again and we know how useful they can be!

The doctor today also wants to start her on a feeding tube. This will remind her stomach that it has a job to do and get it ready for feeding on her own which will hopefully be in a few days. The tube will go through her nose and unless we want otherwise she will just get the milk that I have been able to pump so far.

That's it for now! I'm staying in the hospital today, but I will probably go home (without her) tomorrow.
