A new day!

Yesterday Blair had another great day. She took her FIRST bottle last night and she did so good with it. She is now getting 21ml/hour. They now have her eating 3 hours on and 1 hour off. Last night the nurse checked her residuals and she had NONE! :) With her bottle they will give her 1 bottle a day and it has 10ml in it and she has 10 minutes to eat it. Last night she ate 5ml and the rest went in her feeding tube. I was very surprised that she did so well. She didn't choke at all and it just seemed like she knew exactly what to do with it.
I really didn't care for the nurse she had. I understand we were a little late getting there. (I had to go pick Britt up at his office and it's a 5 hour round trip). We were trying to hurry to make it back by 7:30. She basically told me that when she starts taking more bottles that I needed to be ON TIME. I told her that I wouldn't be able to be there for all the feeds, but I wanted to be sure to give her the first bottle. She was a little snippy with me and handled Blair kind of rough. I just didn't get a good impression from her.
They moved Blair again to a different pod. It's more quiet than even the last pod she was in! Most of the babies in that pod are in cribs.
I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!
