Yay for bottles!

Miss Blair has had such a great day and is now off of high flow oxygen! We see once again how powerful prayer and God's healing hands are. Blair drank some Pedialyte in one of those tiny hospital bottles and downed it in a matter of seconds. After a little while they let us give her some milk. She was whimpering and signed "milk please" when we were getting it ready and signed "all done" after she drank seven ounces. She wanted more shortly after. She may get to have real food before too much longer.

 Drinking her juice.

The next step is to see how she does tonight on the regular nasal cannula. We have the high flow in the room still in case she needs it. If she does ok on the regular flow oxygen, there will be more of a chance of taking her home sooner than later. Since we have oxygen at home, we don't have to wait for her to be completely weaned. 

Hey, my pacis go on here!

 Ok, that's enough! I want them back now!

It's great to see Blair in a better mood, talking, signing, and playing more. She will still watch TV though, which is a sign that she's not completely herself! Notice that my mom is always holding her. I don't know what I did, but it is rare that Blair wants me -- hurts my feelings!

We're SO happy to see that Blair is doing better!! We have all been praying for her, as have so many others, obviously. We will continue to pray and believe with y'all that she'll be home again soon taking care of Gus.

Great news! We are so happy to hear that Blair is feeling better. Still praying for y'all!
PS. If it makes you feel any better, Abby still has yet to say "mommy" ... she's a daddy's girl. Oh well, we know they love us :)
