Follow-Up Appointments

Claire is five weeks old today. We took her to Children's Hospital this morning for follow-up visits with the pediatric surgeon and the pulmonary specialist. She weighs 7 lbs 4 oz! They did a chest x-ray and said her heart is starting to shift more towards the center, which gives her right lung more space. Her left lung is growing. They said we can start taking her off the oxygen some and watching her sats to make sure she stays above 94. Pretty soon she will probably only need the oxygen when she sleeps, because that's the only time her sats dip down that low. Both doctors want to see her again in a month.
