Laura's New Look

Here's where Laura stayed for the week:

Boy are we glad to be home though!!! We're getting used to our new schedule which involves feeds beginning at 6 a.m., every three hours, until midnight. Just a little bit tiring.

Here she is with her new look:

And here's Laura charming everyone in the radiology department. They did a test to make sure she was properly swallowing milk. Fortunately, she was just fine.

Back home and ready to "eat":

Here's what it looks like.

And now it's time to go start a feed and then get some rest before midnight.

I've seen this done before. . it looks uncomfortable but little ones seem just fine with their eating arrangements. Do you still give her something by mouth? Can she keep sleeping during a feed? And. . how much weight does she need to gain before she is chubby enough for surgery?
I hope you don't mind me asking. . .if you are not up to answering questions..I totally understand.
Thinking of you often. . even my family knows about little Laura already.

Precious wee girl. I guess on that feeding schedule, it must feel like you have a newborn again. So glad you were able to come home. That's good news. Praying for you all.
