I have the computer just for a few minutes while Glen is in visiting Maddy. I've not been on the since last night, and haven't had a chance to read the many emails and comments in my box yet, but thank you, thank you! I know that your prayers have not gone unheard.
Maddy had an awesome day today! She was extubated very uneventfully. Her lungs sound beautiful, according to the RT. She also was able to tolerate her first bottle feeding (with my milk) since her surgery (actually, she hasn't been fed since Monday, but she's had fluids/nutrients/fat via IV). And I just went back in after shift change and Nurse Jackie has a crib pulled over for her to transfer to at some point tonight. So all in all, a very perfect day!
OH MY>>>>Glen now: I was just informed by Nurse Jackie that Maddy is ready for her bottle!! I knew Pam wanted to give it to her, so I came out and let her go in to do that for the very first time. Exciting!
Maddy was out of her incubator-type bed and in a real hospital crib for the first time, as well....and also, Jackie says we should be able to begin to hold our precious little girl in another day or so! Can you tell we're thrilled? We feel like we are really beginning to see progress.
