Keep an eye on Flickr, as I’m still uploading photos of Annabel. You can see from her face that she’s putting on weight.
Annabel is into her second week now, and has moved out of the intensive neonatal care room, into the high dependancy unit, and now into the special care baby unit. She is being fed mum’s milk every 3 hours and we’re trying to disturb her as little as possible to let her sleep, conserve energy and grow. She’s a very contented little baby. If her care and development continues this well all the way to Christmas I’ll be very happy. She’ll be getting a little toy in her incubator soon, and some time later she’ll be in a cot and dressed in the huge array of pink premature baby clothes that people have been buying her.
She was under the lamp again today, as she was still a bit jaundiced. The photo-therapy helps break down the bilirubin while her liver is still not fully functioning yet.
