Mia lost a few percentages this week. Other than her demotion to the 3rd percentile for weight... her apt was FABULOUS. We ran into Mia's Heart sister Karlee and mommy Devon. We love seeing all of the babies that have come so far from when we were all living in the hospital.
Oh and YES- Mia is still eating in her sleep. She is averaging about 23 oz per day. We need to go back to the nutritionist because so much has changed, I mean, I keep changing everything! I am curious however, (because I have never had to be so preoccupied with numbers) how much does a typical 1 year old drink? Mia does take baby food too, usually about 1/2 to 3/4 jars of baby food twice a day. Baby food is a lot of empty calories, but we need to get her moving in the solid direction. So... if you have a 1 year old or thereabouts (I like that word)- how many ounces do they drink?
I know Mia has different needs, but I feel like we are pretty close to where they want her, and I don't want to put her tube back in when she is soooo close. We are on Day 8!! Can you believe it? I think I will fortify her formula to see if we can't boost her up to where everyone is happy with her weight.
We're still battling some blood count levels, and if they don't resolve we may be facing a transfusion...but I keep words like "transfusion" at bay.
Happy 4th of July!!
