Lilly started with the Pedialyte yesterday and loved it. She drank her tiny portion in about 2 seconds and then screamed because she wanted more. They said she was "inconsolably hungry" this morning so they mixed, half and half, breast milk and pedialyte. She loved it and so she progressed to straight breast milk at noon. They'll increase her to 3 tsp tonight at 9 and a little bit more every day.
The nurse today said if she continues to do as well as she has been, she should be home in 4-5 days!

Wow, how exciting and wonderful! I can't wait to see her! We will continue to pray for her over the next couple days that everything goes as well as it has.

Oh my goodness! I haven't clicked on your blog for a while so I'm reading all your Lilly posts at once. I'm glad to hear that you are all doing better, especially baby Lilly. We will remember you in our prayers. I hope things continue to improve. It sounds like things are looking up! :)
