Last night Chloe drank, from her cup, 100ml of thickened liquid!!!! That's a little over 3 ounces! That's the most she's EVER taken by mouth. Soooo exciting!!!!!! She weighed in a 15lbs 4oz at the doctor yesterday and jumped on her growth curve so I'm officially given permission to drop down on the tube feeds and let her eat more during the day by mouth!!! Whooo hoooo!
She also had a good check-up at the cardiologist on Monday. An echo and EKG showed that her little heart is working just fine. They went up on her Captopril (blood pressure medication) because she had "moderate regurg", but with no dilation of the left ventricle (in other words - it's all good) and her pressure was on the higher side and she's getting bigger and they won't see her for another 6 months so they have room to go up on her meds. All good news. I'm not sure how long she'll be on the Captopril. I guess we'll give it another 6 months, see where she is and ask then.
The cold is better too. Still has a mild cough with the occasional gagging but NOTHING like before. We're through the worst of it and I can breath a deep sigh of relief!!!!!
