Opal is doing well. The nurses said yesterday that they were going to up the amount of her feeding drip from 2.4 cc's to 2.9 cc's an hour. She's gained a little weight, she's up to 2 lbs 4 3/4 oz. The scab on her hand looks a lot better. It seems to be getting smaller and be healing well. She tolerated not having the mask over her nose really well this morning, but when the respiratory nurse put the prongs in her nose, she decided that she didn't like having it in her nose and would hold her breath until it was taken out. That didn't work though and she went back to sleep.
Brandon's son, Christopher Michael Cass Workentin, was born yesterday at 11:59 AM. He weighed 8 lbs. 13 oz. and was 22 inches long.
