80 Days Intubated - with a tube down her throat and a machine breathing for her.
11 Months on oxygen during the day.
18 Months breathing with oxygen at night.
At 2 years 5 months she is officially released from pulmonary!! Such a big girl!
We love Chloe's pulmonologist, Dr. Sobande but, I must say, I wasn't sad to leave without making a future appointment. Dr. Sobande was thrilled with Chloe's growth (25.3lbs and 2'9"). According to the curve on his computer she's approaching 50th %ile in both weight and height. Seems hard to believe for me but it's pretty amazing!
Chloe's going through a phase where nobody can hold or touch her but me. She wouldn't let Dr. Sobande hold her but she gave him a high five and chatted with him a bit. Her smile is quite charming - he couldn't smile at her enough and just shook his head at how happy he was - saying he wished we were his last appointment so we could just visit for a while. She does have that effect on people.
We're so happy for Chloe - our big easily breathing girl. :-)
P.S. She had an appointment with Dr. Bloom, her opthamologist, today. He's happy and made no changes. We'll see him again in three months. :-)
