4 days old!

This is a picture of the IV machine that Grace USED to be attached to. The screens are black and the lights are off!!!

Today has been such an awesome day! This morning when we came in she was off of oxygen! When we came back from lunch she was off her IV. This evening at her 8:00 feeding she latched on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

She has made huge strides in the last few days and we are so proud of her. We know that she has to sustain all of this and we can't get too excited yet, but man has she come such a long way in a short amount of time.

We did get away today to go home and repack and bring some more things from home since our bags weren't exactly packed for this sort of trip to the hospital. It was a lot easier for me because I've become a little stir crazy in these walls, but definately didn't take my time getting our things back together to get back here. We're sleeping in the sleep room again tonight. Did I mention how comfortable the beds are??? They are so nice and soft and a true blessing cause we're not paying for them.

I am going to see if she will latch on again at her 11:00 feeding to see if we can start her routine of feeding from me and get her away from the bottle feedings....even if she doesn't latch on at 11 doesn't mean much other than she too tired or isn't interested in being consistent yet which is totally normal for her age considering she has been given a bottle that is a lot less work. So, just keep us in your prayers for all that is coming into place.
