Coming Home Soon!
Oh my, well we found out that Bethany is targeted to be discharged and sent home either this Monday (3/24) or Tuesday (3/25). What?!?! As it turns out, she has been doing SO very well and consistent at eating her feedings via a bottle that the doctor removed her feeding tube yesterday. Then, they watched her for 24 hours to see if she continued to eat and gain weight. Well, she took all of her bottles with no problems and is now 5lbs 8oz. What a great eater!! She's fast and efficient too :) They call her new feeding schedule "ad lib," or basically she eats whenever she wants and however much she wants. So with that, they think she'll be ready to come home. Oh my! Well, one baby we can handle. Now, her other sisters (Anna, Suzan and Brielle) have started eating from bottles really well. So who knows, they might come home late next week or so - ha! Here they come!! :)
