17 Days and Counting

Just a Quick Update....

Miss Brynlee is now 17 days old. She is doing so much better! Her pedi finally admitted that he thinks she was about 2 1/2 to 3 weeks early. He said she is pretty much full term now & that it seems her "light" as come on. They are taking her off the reflux meds and she is taking 2/3 of her bottle feedings. Which means the 1/3 of bottle feedings she is not taking are the one that they are "gavaging". THIS IS GREAT NEWS!! He said that she will remain on "gavage" feedings thru the day, then complete bottle feeds starting in the A.M. If she continues to take her bottle feedings then we are looking at her coming home Saturday :) I will have to stay the night at the hospital the night before she is released! So, I am keeping my fingers crossed for Saturday! Keep prayin that God continues to protect her and guide her thru the remainder of her NICU stay!!
