Another difference

Notice any differences today?
Apparently, Little Miss Dorrit is getting particularly talented at grabbing and pulling on things. Last night, she pulled out her nasal cannulas and her caretakers decided to see how she would do without them. Mr. Rochester said that so far, Little Dorrit has been  doing well although she will occasionally desat when she is sleeping. I keep praying that she will successfully be able to breathe without any assistance or future lung mishaps. What a miracle that would be! We are so grateful for the small miracles we've seen and the recent progress she has been making!

She has come so far since the last time I commented here. She looks marvelous to this seasoned PICU nurse. Babies like Little Dorrit are the ones in charge, you know. They tell their medical staff what they want and it's up to the staff to see she gets it. She's telling them now that she's ready to move a little quicker toward the exit and to get out of her way!

Thank you so much for your comment! Your words as an experienced NICU nurse are encouraging and helpful. This whole time, her doctors have basically said the same thing, that she is the boss and we follow her cues. It has been a lesson in patience for me to see this at work.
