Callie Is Amazing!

Callie was moved from her enclosed bed (incubator) to a "big girls bed" a few days ago. She has gained weight - up to 4 lbs 11 oz now and even had a bath last night! Oh yes and her umbilical cord fell off yesterday too. The main thing with moving her into the open bed was if she could keep her temperature up, and she has! That hurdle is done and gone. Yay! Theresa has been teaching Callie how to nurse. She is doing okay but still not really getting anything. Once she gets that down it looks like she just might be going home with her Mommy and Daddy! Theresa has been pumping enough milk so that they really do not have to give Callie formula. We can't thank all of you enough for your prayers, good thoughts and love.

Happy to hear she is doing well...

What an interesting set up they have there... Never seen one like it.

Looks like she is snug as a bug in a rug!
