The nurses love Arabella and Arabella loves her nurses. They have been like her family for all these days and weeks. She knows their voices. She turns her head when she hears one speaking.
When I walked in this morning and then again after lunch, Arabella was not in her crib. She was back visiting with all the nurses. She is a social little thing.
On the health side, she did not do well with her feedings last night. They let her try to go 4 hours between feedings, but she was just as tired after the 4 hours of sleep as with 3, so she ended up eating less than they wanted over night.
They also did a chest x-ray and are afraid she has more fluid in her chest than before. They are increasing her diuretics accordingly.
Fun pictures - Becca, here are pictures of Arabella's hands.
