Good to hear that Charlotte is doing well!
All too soon you'll be thinking of asking the NICU to take Charlotte back for a few days so that you can catch up on some sleep!
I am thrilled to hear of Charlotte's progress! Thoughs, prayers and well wishes to your family for continued progress!

I shot my new niece a few weeks ago with Rolleiflex/Rolleinar - works brilliantly!

The biggest hiccup was when Charlotte needed a chest and abdomen x-ray. The incubators have a cleverly designed film holder built into the base which allows the hospital staff to roll in a portable x-ray machine and shoot straight through her cot.
Any chance of getting hold of the x-rays ?
Could perhaps do some interesting prints from them...(Just thinking out load).

When I had MRIs done, the hospital would not give me the Xray film output to keep. I did need to get them to a specialist though for a short notice appointment and they let me transport them. I never returned them after my appointment was over. Some pretty cool abstractions result from this sort of imagery.
To the OP: I have some xray dupe film that lets you make bigger negatives from smaller negatives and could send you some if you need (If you're in the US for the sake of economical shipping). Develops in anything: xtol, dektol, etc...
