Night 2

The surgeon okayed Robbie to eat tonight. We fed him at 6:45. He took about an ounce. We checked him about 10 and it was basically all gone. DIGESTION HAS BEGUN.

At that time Robbie was screaming his head off to be fed. What a lovely sound! He took another 2 oz.

The plan as I know it is to feed him as he wants tonight and see how it goes. In the morning, if he's digesting well, we'll go to full feeds and see about that.

If it's well, we might get to go home tomorrow!


Also- I posted a shortened version of the last two days over on Robbie's blog, if anyone is interested.

What a great post to go to bed with - knowing that Robbie is eating and doing well. I'm so glad to hear that. I hope that tomorrow and all the days after bring all that you hope for. Robbie is a very special little boy with a very special mother. God bless both of you (and Daddy, of course!)
