Today was a great day. We were dismissed from the hospital, and put up to stay in the Hickle house, which is right behind the hospital so we can be as close to Ellah as possible. Enough about us... Ellah is doing simply fantastic. Each day she improves by leaps and bounds. She is able to go without the high pressure air flow and is fitted with a smaller one that is only on when she needs it. She is eating more everytime and challenging Mom to get enough milk pumped for her, apparently she got daddy's appetite. She has also started to gain weight daily instead of losing that initial weight. An even better sign of her maturing is when we hold her, as she's being fed through the tube, we put the pacifier in her mouth and she just goes to town on it, imitating of course breast feeding. She's so much ahead of the game it's not funny. Already we're the proudest parents in the world!!!
