One Week Old Today!
At 1501 Wendy will be a week old! Oh how fast she is growing up! I will be glad to get her home so I don't feel like I am missing out on her growing up. On the bright side, today is the first day we have really gotten good news. For her to be able to come home she has to be able to eat, maintain body temperature, and breath on her own. She has one down, two to go! They are going to try to feed her Pedialite today and if she does okay with that they will give her breast milk! That's so exciting to me! We are still not sure if she will be able to take a bottle or if she'll need a feeding tube, but we are taking it one day at a time and hoping for the best. They will check her other problems again before she goes home, but they shouldn't prolong her stay. Unfortunately we called the Ronal McDonald house and they are still completely full and have a very long waiting list. But as long as that's the only bad news we get, I'll take it!
