Just a quick update. Little Dorrit's swelling has gone down quite a bit which is great! Her face looks so much better! However, she is still leaking fluid into her pleural cavity at about the same rate. All of this fluid is being measured when it drains from the tube in her chest. This condition is still being monitored and Little Dorrit should be getting an MRI of her abdomen in the next few days to help provide answers as to what is happening there. For some reason, I am really worried about this. Poor Little Dorrit has already faced so many challenges in her 40 days of life, I hate that more keeping coming at her. This morning when the doctors were rounding they mentioned she was 40 days old. I can't believe it's been that long - 40 days seems like such a long time and yet it has all just flown by.
