Coming Home Soon

Lilly is up to 45 ml per feeding now, and only needs to get up to 50 to come home. Apparently early this morning she was very upset about the amount of food she was getting, and they jumped her from 25 to 40 in one feed! She's been doing great, they even let me try to nurse her last night. She latched on great, then she just sat there and looked around. She didn't ever suck, and after about 10 min she fell asleep. The nurse said it was good for her first time, and not to expect too much from her. She didn't reject it, and seemed to like it, so I hope we're off to a good start because I'm ready to be done with the pump.
They expect to take her IV out tomorrow and possibly send her home Tuesday. We can't wait for the big day, it feels like we're having a baby all over again!

Thanks again for every one's prayers, love, support and babysitting.
I'm sure Lilly has done so well because there are so many people praying for her.

I must be a complete moron. I had no idea that you had even had lilly. I missed way to much while I was gone for a month. I can't believe I didn't know. And you sat right infront of me on Sunday. I'm glad that she is doing well. And I will make a greater effort to show my support in the future.
