Guess who's feeling better?

Olivia is doing awesome this afternoon (all things considered). She has been up since 7:30 this morning we no thoughts of a nap. After her GI study this morning, she definitely had a little more pep. However, Speech came in and said she had gotten the okay to try to give her some food by mouth! Yippee! She ate a half a Goldfish, 1/2 an Apple Jack, and about 6 itty bitty bites of a Nutrigrain bar! After this, she was waving, smiling, giggling, and pulling herself up on the side of the crib! The girl loves her food! I think a lot of it has to do with stimulation and knowing there is life outside of her room, but the food definitely helped. They re-started her feeds at 5 ml an hour again, and they will check every 4 hours or so. They will continue to go up as she tolerates! We're just praying that her belly is ready this time! Keep you posted...
