Wednesday, October 6, 2010 7:16 PM, EDTTori had a GREAT DAY today! She was actually awake for about 2 different 30 minute periods, eyes open and taking everything in. She falls asleep the minute you pick her up to snuggle, its like she knows she is safe if you are holding her, but when she is laying in her bed, she likes to see what is going on around her! Jay and I both just sat there are marveled at our little miracle.
They increased her feeds today...she is now getting 2ml an hour....so just over 1 1/2 ounces of mama's milk a day! She hasn't pooped since they increased her feeds, but they nurse says her tummy is nice and soft and that there are good bowel sounds!
I even managed to sneak away from her crib for a 10 minute massage, they offer them to the parents every Wednesday. Usually I can't stand to have people touch me, but for some reason, today it felt so right! I actually felt LESS TENSE when she was finished!
We are so surrounded by love and friends. I can feel the healing power of prayer around us. One of my friends husband's who works at the hospital stopped in to see up tonight, it was nice to know we have "friends" on the inside who are willing to help! Food and other items keep showing up at the house, a real blessing!
Tori wore a sleeper today! We have to get her some clothes....she is too long for preemie clothes, but the nurse says she thinks newborn items will work....Hannah should have fun shopping for her!
