So this morning we went to visit our baby girl and were so thrilled to see that her CPAP had been removed. This is the big tube that was pushing oxygen into her lungs. I apologize to all of your medical folk out there for my potential inaccuracies in describing the equipment.....They had replaced this with a smaller tube that is not giving her any oxygen but just room air and helping her stabilize her breathing. They have been giving her formula and slowly increasing the amount they feed her. At her last feeding at 3 they gave her 20 cc's and she took all of it beautifully. They are going to try 25 at 6 and hopefully they will decrease her IV tonight as well if she continues to take the formula. The staff is so pleased with her progress and hope that she continues on the path that she is. We just need her breathing to slow down a bit more and we can start introducing bottles/direct feeding to her. I have started pumping and so that has been interesting!! I could probably do an entire blog just on that! I am trying to roll over my laisse faire attitude and just be patient with the whole process. I received the best gift this morning when the NICU nurse took Georgia off of all her monitors and let me and Raymond hold our precious angel. It was by far the most incredible moment in my life. I will treasure it forever. I don't think that I could ever express in words how wonderful my heart felt at that moment. She is so beautiful and so perfect and I am already the proudest mama on the block! Now we will just wait patiently to bring her home and introduce her to her "Big Sister" Tellie and have our little family complete!!
