Phoebe is getting more food again this week, and less TPN. She now gets about 66% of her nutrition from food, and 33% from TPN. Yay! The GI doc said that she's trying not to get too excited, but that she's excited. Knock on wood, cuz we're all feeling pretty darn great. See?
In other news, Phoebe is doing so well that the homecare nursing company has discontinued her "block" nursing. This means that Kathy, Phoebe's nurse who stayed for six hour shifts, will not be coming to see her any more. It's a good thing because it means Phoebe is getting better, but it was sad to see her go. Phoebe really liked her, and Mommy loved having the support from such a knowledgeable nurse. Thank you Kathy, we love you and we'll miss you!
Can you guess what happens next?
Phoebe's Great-Grandmother "Nonni" held a welcome party for her last weekend. It was such a nice party, and it was great to see Phoebe interact with her family members. Here's an adorable picture of Phoebe with her Nonni.
