Still waiting...

for Calleigh to come home. BUT we have been able to hold her the last two days. It is just wonderful. SHe is doing well. Breathing room air with a little pressure for some part of the day and on totally on her own for other parts of the day. Her main issue is her belly. She has yet to poop and she is a week old (already). Not sure what is going on. They ran some tests which all came back OK. They did another test yesterday but we won't have results until tomorrow or Friday. She looked wonderful today and the dr said it's the best her belly has looked since birth. We are praying she just needs more time and it's nothing serious. They had stopped all her feeds because she wasn't tolerating them. Today they started her again at 11am and she tolerated the feed. WOOOOO HOOOO! They fed her again at 3pm so they will check to see if she keeps it all in about 5pm. If that works they will continue to feed her and hopefully she will start pooping. They are feeding her special formula right now but will switch to breast milk at her next feeding if she tolerates them. I am hoping she will take the breast milk because I know it's what's best for her.

Will try and keep updating when I can. It's so hard to be back and forth to the hospital with three little ones at home. Cormac is back in school this week so he needs to get there every day. Luckily, Frank is off until Monday. Who knows what will happen next week! One day at a time, right?
