Anniston took to the bottle today like a champ! We were able to give her three feedings in a row this afternoon, and she guzzled about 3/4 of each bottle! The nurse said that it's great when babies take in half that much after heart surgery...In other words: She did AWESOME!! They also took out her cannula (you can see that she still has the big, round stickers on her face that held it in place...we decided to let the nurse take them off and deal with Anniston screaming afterward :)), so we're down to her feeding tube through which the remainder of her bottle is
given and her IV!
She likes being in her little burrito...
The nurse also said today that Anniston may be ready to move to a step-down room in the next couple of days where we can have more one-on-one time and privacy while we learn better how to care for her on our own!
**I heard earlier today that Hadassah's surgery went great and that she is in recovery!! God is so good!!**
