Bit of News... and a couple pics!

Today Karsie was started back on feeds! Yay! She started VERY slow at 1mL an hour continuous. She has been tolerating it well; and if she continues to tolerate it, then she will be increased tomorrow (by an unknown amount). She is on pedialyte today and sometime within the next 24-48 hours she will be moved to Elecare. She will need to get up to full feeds of Elecare and tolerate that before we transition back to breast milk (but that is still the goal).
As promised, here are a couple pictures of our baby's tape-free, tube-free, beautiful face!!
