A Week With Katie

Our little darling has been home for a week now and is doing great! She is working hard on her therapy: speech (for feeding), occupational (fine motor skills), and physical (large muscle groups). She had her second pediatrician appointment today and they confirmed that she is growing well. She is a whopping 10 pounds, 2.6 ounces and is 22.5 inches long now! She has gained half a pound in just the time since she has come home, which is wonderful. Her speech therapist was so impressed with how well Katie feeds that she has given her blessing for us to give her three 15 ml bottles a day now instead of just two. Monday, we had started mixing skimmed breast milk in with the Enfaport formula that she is on and so far she is doing fine on it. We plan on getting the dietician's input next week on the best way to phase her into whole breast milk. Tomorrow she will have her first follow up appointment with the cardiologist to check on her heart, so be praying that it goes well.
