Yep, Willow hit 3 pounds today. We are so proud of her and how well she's doing. She really is a fighter. This morning we got some really good time in with Willow She had a good night, and Lindsay got to kangaroo with Willow for over a hour first thing this morning. Willow did great the whole time, and mom was very happy. Willow's been tolerating her feedings well so far. She's up to 8 mls every 3 hrs. They will raise it by 2 ml every day as long as she's doing well. She's been doing good on the CPAP and they are hoping to go to a nasal cannula within the next couple of days. This evening before we left we both held her for a while "baby" style. I got a great look at her beautiful face. I was a happy dad.
Lindsay and I are now back in Houghton. We got back tonight kinda late. I'm getting a bunch of stuff done tomorrow and then heading back down on Tuesday. My mom and Janna are holding fort in MQT and sending updates often. Janna is a great help with moral support, unfortunatly the only thing she can do at the hospital is hold our spot in the waiting room. Mom should get to hold Willow the next couple of day. Thanks to them for all the help. We'll keep updating you, even if we're in Houghton.
Good night (or morning),
Bye bye to Tat
