Well I am home now. I was discharged this afternoon. Brynlee...Yup that is her name...Brynlee Anne Larsen. This afternoon Brynlee was taken off the oxygen and feeding tubes. She was only left with her IV and her monitors. I got to feed her 5cc's (about a teaspoon) of milk that I have pumped in a bottle. They want to make sure that she keeps the food down and handles it well and also breathes well. So its been about 6 hours since the tubes have been out and she seems to be doing well. We fed her at 2pm, she had another feeding at 5pm and we will feed her again at 8pm. She will continue with the 5cc's for a few feedings and then they will up it to 10cc's and decrease her IV so she will be weaned from that. Tyler and I were able to go to his parents for a little bit to eat Thanksgiving dinner. It was really hard to leave the hospital without our baby, but hopefully by Saturday we will be able to bring her home. We have to wait to see what the heart ultrasound says and how she is tolerating her feedings. I hope that I got all her updates in there...I'm pretty tired. Makenna is doing pretty good considering she has only met her little sister for about 2 minutes and has only seen her mommy a few times in the past 3 days!
