Over another hurdle
Avery got her catheter taken out and can be on her back for 15 minutes at a time throughout the day. She is doing so good. She continues to eat well and is gaining weight. Her breathing is still fluctuating, so they have increased her oxygen. They started her on caffeine a couple days ago hoping that it would help with the breathing but it hasn't. She is starting to open her eyes more and cries when she doesn't like something. I have asked a few times now when she might be able to come home. Theres no real answer. I do know she needs to be taking all her feedings either through nursing or bottle and her breathing needs to get better.
