Unhooked...

Today was a great day! The doctor said that I could just nurse her everytime she is hungry. I think she has been so crabby lately because she was hungry. They were only giving her 2.5 ounces every 3 hours. She gets double that when she nurses. She is back to being a content, happy baby. We also got "unhooked" from all of her monitors. She also got her feeding tube out for a trial 24 hour period. So as long as she eats good and gains weight we don't have to go home with the feeding tube. So far so good though. She has her final echo tommorow, so as long as everything looks good we may go home tommorow or Tuesday! I feel like her surgery was sooo long ago. She has come a long way and I am so proud of her. All the doctors and nurses have been saying that she looks so great.
