Half Off

Dear Ellie,

You've mastered the whole eating thing but unfortunately, you can't seem to kick the oxygen habit.  You've been weaned down to the smallest bit of supplemental oxygen possible, 25 ml's, but when they take you off of oxygen altogether, you just can't stay afloat on your own for too long.  When you get down to it, 25 ml's is trivial.  It's almost like a placebo.

Anyway, throughout the day, you'll go on and off, on and off.  I was hoping you'd be off oxygen entirely by your 36th week but it looks like instead you'll be... half off.  Given that everything else seems to be working properly, I guess that's a small thing to complain about.

  1. I would've thought it'd take even longer, consider her big leap to breastfeeding. Just keep chugging the milk, Ellie!
