Perhaps you noticed that there are NO FEEDING TUBES in any of these pics! This morning the doc got a wild hair and told the nurse to yank ’em both and see how they did on just bottles all day. Nora made up a lot of ground today, trying like hell to catch up to her sister. She even took a couple full feeds (2 oz!) by bottle. I mean, I can’t really blame her. I’d eat a lot more if I didn’t have a tube up my nose anymore, too.
So all of this means that our little ladies are on the fast track to hittin the road!! The doc is going to monitor their feeding volumes and weight gains over the next couple days and they could be home as early as THIS WEEKEND! Yeah–we know. When we heard that we just about crapped our pants, too.
We’ll keep you posted….
