Tuesday, November 9, 2010 9:03 AM, ESTTori is EATING! She took full feeds by mouth at 3 AM, 6 AM, 9 AM and 6 PM! She is now up to 70 ml (2 1/3 ounces) at each feed! She didn't stop breathing at all when I fed her at 6 PM and there was no mention of her having any brady episodes at other feeds (we know for sure she didn't brady at 9 AM because the occupational therapist fed her and they stop the feed immediately if they brady). Maybe we will finally get to bring her home!
Unfortunately there is something wrong with her right eye (not the eye with the infection). The lid is a very odd shade of pink/red (even according to the eye doctors) and they have been up to look at it twice. They thought maybe it had been scratched during surgery but there is no sign of trauma to the inside of the lid (on the side that touches the eyeball) or to the eye itself. Since they don't know what it is, they don't know what to do to treat it! She is still on IV antibiotics, hopefully that will keep it from progressing to anything else!
