This is Joseph again. Short update:
The team of cardiologists just came through. They said that Verity is taking in two thirds or less of what she needs. They’re going to watch her for another day (at least that we know of) and see if she responds by gaining weight. She still hasn’t gained anything overall, but she seems stable.
She’s going to work on a bottle for half an hour each feeding time and she’s going to get whatever is left through an NG tube. They’re sending someone from the NICU to assess her suck and swallow before she gets the NG tube.
Mom sounds quite better over the phone. She said she slept through a feeding, so one of the nurses fed Verity! Thank you for all your prayers.
[Susanna wanted to edit this to say that she asked the nurse to wake her, but the nurse felt sorry for her and let her sleep. The reason she felt so much better was that she got three hours of sleep all in a row for the first time since the baby was born!]
