A Real Meal!

Blair got her first bottle today! She did great! The nurses and I were all nervous -- no one wants to mess up such great progress, but it worked out fine. She's being fed 55 cc today. Like a pro, she took 35 cc by bottle. We didn't want to push it, so she got the last 20 cc through the tube. None of us could believe how well she did. Blair's such a big girl! Of course we took pictures of the big moment. I think it wore her out. She went right to sleep and did not bat an eye when we put her back in bed.

There were no other changes for today. She is still doing well, and they are still working on weaning her oxygen. She continues to get breathing treatments as well.

After all that work...
