Well, Alison has been eating like a little champ the last few days. So much so that they put her on an ad lib schedule. Meaning that if she takes 40ml, she can go three hours until her next bottle, 55ml and she can go four hours...although she is not fond of the four hour schedule! Plus, she is now over her birth weight which is great. They said she might get to come home on Thursday or Friday.

She does have a brady every so often when eating, but they only happen when eating and they said that is very common with babies her gestational age as they remember to breathe, suck and swallow.

Yay!! Go Alison! Jack had bradys too while eating and I would just have to back the bottle out and make him slow down and breathe and it would go right back up! yay I can't wait until you get her home!!
