Well, some more positive news for the McCarthy members. Kaitlyn continues to improve, which is just tremendous news. No major changes, but just gradual improvement. She's now using 30% oxygen, so almost normal air, compared to the 100% of just a few days ago. She also got her first bit of milk today (a whopping 1 cc, or about 10 drops), hopefully she responds well to it. Apparently the hospital is redoing part of the NICU, so they had to move Kaitlyn to the other side of the room. You'd think that moving a 1 1/2 lb baby would be a fairly easy task, but apparently it took 6 people to move her and all of her devices. She was a little bit anxious during the move, but appears to have settled down since then.
Mom's still exhausted, although she sounded much better on the phone than she has in previous days. With having to give milk every couple of hours, it's still hard for her to get enough sleep. Between visiting the hospital, getting Brian to his doctor so he can donate more blood (since he's the same bloodtype as Kaitlyn), having the nurse come by the house to check Liz's wound, there's just lots going on. They also had to start handling some of the details for Corinne today, which is emotionally exhausting.
Every time I talk to her, Liz always asks me to please thank everyone for all of their warm wishes and prayers, it really is great having such positive emotional support for them through this.
