Her feeding tube has been out completely for the past few days. All sources of caloric intake are "au-natural". She gives one nipple a go for a bit - and finishes off with another via the bottle. As picture indicates, I take the secondary feeding to top up. My genetic disposition dictates it is impossible to take the primary feed.
So Molly has been in the section of the NICU which is closest to the exit. There are 3 sections, labelled A, B, & C - she is in the "C" unit in a solitary room with a comfortable couch. The one drawback is that there is a meager view out of its large picture windows. Nevertheless it is closest to the door as indicated, and it gets a good deal of morning sunshine.
Notice and compare Shelly's card making skills to those of her cousins who made the card shown above.... They are in Kindergarten, the first and second grades. Shelly is a few years removed..... Thanks anyway my sweet baby - level 1! I love you too.
