Still no feeding tube!

So we ended up going to the dr. today for Teagan's weight check. I was really nervous about weighing her because the last few days have been our 'trial run' without the feeding tube. If Teagan had lost weight or was unable to gain any without it, we were going to have to consider putting it back in. On friday she weighed 8lbs 11oz and today she was 8lbs 13.5 oz!! Considering the fact that we didn't find a formula that works for her until Sunday, this was huge! The formula that we switched to on Sunday has been working so far- finally! She is eating more than ever and hasn't had any more blood in her stools since Sunday night! The dr. agreed that she seemed to be doing well enough on her own that we don't need the tube for now! YAY! I don't know who is more relieved, me or Teagan! We both HATED that thing!

It looks like we're finally figuring things out with her feeding, and she's happier than ever! The last few days have been pretty good and sometimes I look at her and forget that she's not a 'normal' baby! Its sooo nice to catch myself doing this! (something I didn't think I'd ever be able to do!) In the last week she has developed a 'clogged duct' in her right eye that requires prescription eye drops, but it doesn't seem to be bothering her and should clear up soon! Thank you to everyone who has been praying for us and Teagan's feeding issues lately!

Oh yay, yay, yay! Glad those awful diapers cleared up. Did they put her on Alimentum?

What a beautiful family!
