Out of the Woods, Into the Brush

Dear Ellie,

I came in this morning and your respirator settings had inched again in the right direction.  Your feedings are up and I think you are "legitimately" 2 pounds, now (2 pounds, 1 ounce).  Your chronic lung disease will probably stalk you for years, but I think we've reached a point where we can reliably expect that the infection in your lungs is under control.  The imminent danger has passed, I think, and now we are back to scrutinizing smaller things.  At least, this is what I hope...
