From Beth: No, these aren't old pictures.  Sarah Beth had to go back on the Nasal CPAP this morning.  She was breathing very hard and not able to take in a lot of air while she did.  The doctor said it is probably from her taking shallow breaths last night.  Those breaths weren't enough to keep her airways open and they closed down causing her more and more trouble breathing.  The CPAP keeps those airways open.  The doctor said to expect her to be on it for the next couple of days at least.  That should give her time to rest and regain her ability to breathe.

Her feedings have been raised to 23mL of milk every three hours.  She is having trouble with reflux which causes a lot of de-sats after she eats.  They have said that is from the steroids she is still receiving.  They give her Tagament to help, but it isn't helping enough.  There isn't much they can do for her about that, so we just feed her slowly and hold her up in her bed so she isn't laying flat while she eats.

She did, however, gain over 4 ounces today which puts her just over 3lbs!  She might very well lose a little after gaining that much in one day, but tonight, on her 6 week birthday, she is a 3 pound baby.  :)

Thank you all again for your continued prayers.  We still need them!
