Ultrasound of her head

Nina had an ultrasound of her head done this morning. Don't know the results yet, but the neonatologist was pretty sure everything would come back normal. It was just to make sure. She has been taken off the pulse oximeter, the device that measures oxygen saturation in her blood, since she has not had any problems with that for at least 5 days or more. Also, when we are there holding her we can take her off the other monitors to mimic what it will be like at home. The neonatologist wants to make sure that we are comfortable with taking her home before we actually do that. We are hoping to take her home this week, just like we have been the past two weeks. I'll believe it when she is at home. She's growing and doing better everyday.
