Mackenzie :: Week three in NICU

Mackenzie is doing amazingly. She is now at 3lbs 7oz!!!! Daddy says to keep fattening her up. She has no more tube in the nose for eating. She is stricktly on bottle feedings!!! anywhere from 27-30cc depending how hungry she is. She is still a peanut. next measurment is tomorrow on her 3 week bday...... I have been here with her everyday but two. I feel guilty for leaving to do anything. She passed her eye exam last week, did not pass her hearing yesterday. But there is one more done before discharge. She is doing great but still has disibilities we may not see right away, possibly till she hits 2. we just wont know.. but this is the update for the week.... I been emotional cause im stuck with no car, yet i leave and feel  guilty. have so many life issues tring to keep out of the way.. but im just happy she is excelling!!!!!!!!!!  My baby girl ROCKS

  • You will be glad you stayed with her. I would feel guilty leaving too. Deal with the rest of the world later...focus on your beautiful baby for now. She is coming right along. I am so happy and relieved for you!
