Abby was enjoying her new swing. She falls right asleep. She was on just regular nasal cannula - really only getting a whiff of air. So she has been doing great. The therapists have been working on her neck, back, and shoulders. We are swaddling her so her arms and legs are in close to her and moving her to her sides. She still loves her pacifiers. Her voice still has to heal quite a bit. Dr. King did not decide to try to feed her yet. I heard he spoke with Dr. Baxter in the NICU. Abby will be going to the floor and not back in the NICU. The neonatologists said she is too far along. The insurance also said she didn't need to be in an Intensive Care Unit.

Also, she got her last catheter taken out, plus got her wound vac changed out. I saw the wound. Jason said it looked great after 3 days already. The skin is coming closer together. He said maybe another week or two.
