This photo shows Katie Rose being fed by her nurse. Katie gets all her food from milk that Phyllis pumps.
Katie’s brunch milk is shown in the little beaker in the nurse’s hand in this photo. You can see the tube, sometimes called a gavage tube, that feeds the milk directly into her stomach.
Katie is now getting 13 ML (milliliters) every two hours. This is a couple of teaspoons.
When we visited Katie in the NICU today, we were pleased to see the first hint of a future fleshing out. You can see within her the pudgy baby that if things continue to go well she will one day become.
