Ella's appointment went great! They were pleased with her weight gain and the amount of "food" she is eating. The NICU doctor that we saw, Dr. Claflin, said that we will schedule her swallow study to see if she is still aspirating for late September. If at that point she is not aspirating, then we will be released from the NICU follow-up clinic and transfer all of Ella's health to our pediatrician. (We will continue to follow-up with the NICU developmental clinic). She weighed 12 pounds 3 ounces and her blood pressure was great at 88/50.
