Now for some Lily news...Matt dropped me off at the hospital before he and the other girls went to church so I was able to spend a lot of uninterrupted time with Lily. The bili light is doing wonders- the nurse was hopeful that she wouldn't need to spend any more time under it after yesterday, lab results today will decide if that was enough. They are also going to try to take her out from under the warmer today and see if she can maintain her own body temperature. We will gather up some of our way-too-big onesies (we weren't prepared for a preemie and haven't been to the store) to take for her today. Soon, hopefully, they'll be able to start her on tube feedings again so that we can progress to trying nursing. So far her suck-swallow-breathe isn't as coordinated as it needs to be and she just isn't showing much interest in her pacifier (the pacifier is a GOOD thing for a preemie to teach them the suck-swallow-breathe routine) but that will come with time and then we can try nursing. All will come in time.
We are just grateful that Lily is doing as well as she is. I know that there are many babies who aren't doing as well, so we have been extremely fortunate. Heavenly Father is truly watching over her and while there are some obstacles to face they aren't impossible.
