Another update

Last night - the doctors said that Eden could finally eat - after almost 5 days with no food! Can you imagine... I think she was actually starting to get fussy from not eating:) So we started with some pedialyte and she held that down. Then they let me give her a bottle for formula last night before bed and she took 2oz pretty well. This morning she woke up fussing and as soon as I gave her a bottle, she settled down! This is definitely a new thing for her - I hope it is a sign of good things to come with her eating. She's still a little slow at it and I don't expect her to start drinking 8oz bottle tomorrow - but I think we're headed in the right direction - FINALLY! Dr. Rice said that she should probably go home this weekend as long as things continue to go well. Thanks for all your prayers - please continue to pray that her little body will handle the formula and that she will eat enough to gain weight properly!
