My Little Miracle Baby

pp
I am happy to report that Peyton is doing AWESOME!!  I was able to start feeding her 2 days ago.  They started her on a very small amount and are slowly working her up to a full feed. 
We are currently halfway there…I’m hoping we have her on full feeds by Wednesday.  They are also letting me start breastfeeding her tomorrow!!  I’ve been pumping this whole time so I’m eager to see how this is going to go!
 
It really is a true miracle to see how far she has come in such a short amount of time...The doctors are completely amazed, they call her their little rock star baby!!  If she gains weight and is able to handle these full feeds AND digest them properly, hopefully we will be out of here soon!!!!

The one set back I am praying doesn’t happen is that her body won’t be able to absorb enough of the nutrients in the food because of all the intestine they had to take out.  We should know if we are in the clear by Wednesday or Thursday!

She truly looks amazing compared to what she  looked like 11 days ago when she was born.  She now looks like what a healthy thriving newborn is suppose to look like!!!

I can’t thank everyone enough for all the prayers said for her and all the kind and supportive words said to us!!
