Wednesday update

I think its Wednesday, isn't it?  I have no idea anymore.  LOL.  I'm trying to get lots of sleep, but between pumpings its hard to get enough.  I feel like I'm in a fog half the time, and no time for naps during the day between taking care of Brendan and going up to the hospital.  Oh well, hopefully it will only be another few weeks.

She's doing great, BTW.  Did another NNN session today, and she actually got latched on for about a full minute!!!  WTG Meghan!  :-)  They were calling her "Super Preemie" (the nurses were).  She's such a good baby!  They also said she never cries, she's a very content baby.  A stinky one though, they have no problem telling when its time for a new diaper LOL. 

Next week we'll start nursing/bottle feeding/  They said they take their cues from her, and when she starts getting too tired they stop the feeding and do the rest thru the gavage feeding tube.  SOmetimes she might only nurse/bottle feed for a few minutes, or she might do a whole feeding.  Then they said after she goes 24 hours without needing the gavage feeder (8 feedings) they remove the tube.  It might take several days or weeks, or it might be pretty quick, it all depends on her.  :::::::::fingers crossed::::::::: that it is quick.  She nuzzled for another 30 minutes today, kept rooting around everytime I thought she was tired and pulled away.  Such a wonderful baby!
