Tuesday Update...

Still riding that stupid rollercoaster:) Mya has stalled they're telling me. She ate a full bottle, then half a bottle, then a full bottle, then a half a bottle, and so on. She's been doing this since Sunday. So, her doctor was in this morning and ordered the nurses to feed her through her tube all night long and then do the bottle just during the day. It sounds like a step backwards and I told her nurse that...but she assured me they do this to get them to "snap out of it" faster. If she's fully rested she'll be more ready to eat from a bottle all day and this will trigger her to do it all night as well. This does however put a delay on her coming home. Once she eats a full bottle for 24 horus straight her feeding tube will come out and they've now decided that after that they need to moniter her with a machine that reads her breating pattern for 24 hours. Her breathing is really shallow, so they just want to run that "test" to make sure before she goes home. Of course they don't do this breathing testing on Fridays or Saturdays (they have to get a special machine and person to administer the test), so it may be next week before she's able to come home...Arrgghh! If by the grace of God she eats really, really well tomorrow we may be seeing her at home this weekend. I'll keep you posted.
