She is doing fantastic and we feel certain she will be coming home with us tomorrow! We were really anxious to try to feed her. We thought it would hurt and she'd have a hard time...she literally downed 6 oz of milk like it was nothing! The best part of it all is that she "sucked" it down. Until now she has been missing the roof to her mouth and has been unable to suck or form a seal in her mouth. I could feel the bottle being sucked into her mouth as I was trying to pull it out because it was empty. She sucked for the first time at 1 year old. Weird. :) :)
As I was walking back into the unit so elated that our girl is back I ran into another mom I met while sleeping (if you call it sleeping) in the family room. She was crying and said she couldn't talk but that she'd talk to me tonight when we go to bed. Thanks to Megan and her sister Laurel, we are staying at a hotel and I feel terrible for this mom. It is so hard being here knowing that Jordan will be going home and will get better when I know that is not the case with some of these kids. I feel guilty that we are staying in a hotel, I feel guilty that she is doing well and also that we are leaving tomorrow. It's really a tough situation. Please pray for these families. They have SUCH sad situations and many of them only have hope in these bodies in this lifetime. My hope comes from a God who loves me, who created me in His image and who has called me according to His purposes. Such comfort! Pray for their children's lives and also that they would all, sooner rather than later, learn to trust in Christ as their salvation and sustenance.
So very thankfully,
