Anniston in her first outfit...a cute lil hospital gown!
She started taking a full bottle yesterday, SO:
She doesn't have a feeding tube anymore!! (Actually she pulled it out too, but they were ready to take it out anyway.) *Note the sleepy-head trying to doze mid-feed in the above pic :).
We do have a some prayer requests. Anniston has had a few small things come up today that mostly appear to be normal baby issues, but the doctors are of course monitoring her closely just to be safe. She has some mucous in her eyes and has had a small amount of blood in a few stools. The mucous seems to be no big deal, and while the blood seemed like a bigger issue to us, the doctors said it is pretty common, but they are keeping a close eye on it. Anniston also has a small infection that was found after some cultures were taken today, so she is on some antibiotics. The top of her incision has opened a good bit since her surgery, so the infection could have originated there. Her vitals are perfect, she does not seem to be in any pain, and she is taking full feeds, so clinically there is nothing raising a red flag there. Obviously, the doctors are not too concerned because they are planning on moving her to the step-down room tomorrow morning! She really does look awesome, and she has only been crying when hungry so we are claiming that she is healthy and moving forward in her recovery! Thank you for praying for our baby!
