Excerpts From My Diary: Day Seven {Payton's Birth}

Last night they decided they didn't need to supplement Payton with oxygen and she took all of her bottles. They are slowly increasing the bottle amounts and decreasing her IV fluid. Payton has increased her feeding amounts quicker than they expected ... she is up to 60 mL, so the IV fluids will be gone soon. Thank God!

Payton got a washcloth bath today at 8:00 p.m. ... she was less than thrilled. Her belly button also fell off today and it looks as if it might be an outie.

Payton's bilirubin is down to five, which is great. The nurse is just waiting to receive orders to remove the lights. They are also weaning her from the warm temperature in the isolette and if she can hold her body temp, she will be in an open crib by this afternoon. Praise God!

Cardiology did an EKG this morning and we are waiting for the results.
