Miss Allison continues to improve. She has been off of her oxygen since yesterday evening and has been doing great. That means that today I finally got to hold her! It also means that she was able to start eating today. I don't totally understand the thinking behind how they do everything, but they wanted to make sure that her respiratory issues were cleared up before they gave her anything to eat. So for the last day and a half she has had only sugar water through an IV. I'm sure that it feels good for her to finally get some food in her tummy! Mom was excited to finally get to nurse her, too! The doctors want to make sure that feeding is going well and then hopefully we should be headed home. It sounds like if things keep going as well as they have we will be able to leave tomorrow or Sat. Hurray!
