A little medical update on the Pheebs. Phoebe's TPN is, well, no longer TPN. She is getting just fluids in her IV, which also means that she gets all her calories by mouth. The docs are keeping her on IV fluids through the end of the summer, so as to virtually eliminate the risk of becoming dehydrated. She is getting more and more milk every week, and this week we will be adding powdered formula to her milk. This will increase the caloric value of her feeds. She's doing great. More pictures coming soon.
