Abby got a nice surprise yesterday -- the doctor had her feeding tube taken out. She has been kind of doing so-so without it. She still just lacks stamina. I spent the night there last night, and will probably be doing so most of the time for now-- John is trying to keep up with work, school, and hospital visits. It takes a lot of time to feed her - and it looks like she does better when John or I are doing it.... Needless to say, I am exhausted. Between feeding Abby and pumping more milk, there was not much time left for sleep. I will also probably not post pictures very much for a little bit. I am home for a few minutes today, and just don't want to be blogging at the hospital computer (unlike when I was in the hospital and got my laptop set-up there.) Plus, now that Abby is older - I have more opportunities to take care of her. I can almost do all of it now.
So, we may get Abby to come home in just a matter of days. She is currently weighing 5 lbs 11.5 oz, but may lose some weight as we make her work for her food more.... Mommy and Daddy need patience and Abigail needs stamina.... Here is hoping for a good week.... We hope all of you are doing well!
