Doing Great!

Teagan had her first appointment with the cardiologist yesterday and so far everything looks great! She had an EKG and an echo (ultrasound of her heart) and the dr. said that her heart is doing everything they want it to do! We've been working with her on oral feeds so that we can take out the feeding tube soon. Yesterday she finished her first full bottle feed! She's nursing alot in between her tube feedings too, so eventually we will switch to all bottle and nursing when she can do it 24/7. She weighed 7lbs 3 oz yesterday and today at her pediatric checkup she was 7lbs 4 oz! Hopefully she can keep adding an ounce a day and put a few more rolls on her little body! She is smiling more when she is awake now and its so fun to watch. We managed to catch one with the camera! Its amazing with all that she has been through that she smiles and is happy!

What a beautiful miracle you have! That smile is priceless! We will keep praying for more good reports! It's just wonderful to hear that she is nursing and that you are able to bond with her again in that way. I am sure all those times in the hospital this moment seemed miles away. Thank you for sharing your story with all of us.
