It was a good Sunday. Willow's blood pressure has come down a bit and she's still acting perfectly healthy. She nippled at 11 PM last night, 5 AM, 8 AM and 2 PM today, taking over half her bottle each time (I can't remember the exact amounts she took but it was a good effort each time). She's getting there, slowly but surely. I'm heading back over for her 8 PM feeding pretty soon to try again. Josh left a couple hours ago, taking back the two newest milk bins as usual.
When Willow was born, we didn't put her on the "baby page" on the MGHS website. I don't really know why; I guess we had other things on our minds. Yesterday one of the nurses asked if we want to now and we were like, "heck yeah!" Of course, Willow's already an Internet celebrity, but she deserves to be on there like any other baby, if for no other reason, to show the parents of that other Willow (born in March) that Willow Hope is the original and they're copycats! :) You can check out her listing here. I wish she could've had her picture on the Aspirus Keweenaw website instead, but oh well.
That's about all the news for today; here are some more photos:
If you're persistent, you can get a preemie to eat even while seemingly asleep!
