Basically, the most important thing is that it's a step-up from where she was, and that it's progress. However, now that I've said that, she has also just finished her second round of steroids. Aaaand, the last time Elsie finished the 'roids, she kinda crashed and eventually had to be re-intubated. She might crash again, but she might not. AND the good news is that if she does need some additional support after her steroids wear off, they can put her back on the NIPPV instead of being intubated. Yay!
Here are some lovely cell phone pictures for your viewing pleasure:

|Love pictures with something else with her to show the perspective of her size|
And last but definitely not least, the stars and the moon were in alignment, because both Elsie and Clayton were feeling well, and Daddy finally got to hold his baby! Every other time, either Clayton was sick or Elsie wasn't stable enough to be held. So here's the proud papa holding his little girl. PS, he didn't want me to take pictures, so don't embarrass him :)
