Chillin' at the Hospital

We spent our day just hanging out at the hospital. This is Elaina just kicking back with Mom in the recliner.Now she's loving her new Teddy Bear friend. This bear will travel home with Ben on Wednesday. It's currently getting her "magic loves" in it, so that he doesn't miss her so much. There is another bear at home that will take it's place. That bear is getting full of his "magic loves" and they will be making the swap on Wednesday.

She had a little accident, and needed to have a bath. She really liked looking at her nurse. I think she wanted to pull her hair or take off her glasses....

She's just zoning here, looking up at her mobile and listening to the music. She really loves to watch it turn in circles.
I'm not really sure what she's looking at in this picture. She was just content to lay in the crib and let me take pictures of her.
So that was most of our day. She had a throw up session that scared the nurse this morning, so I think that they're ready to take me seriously when I tell them that I get freaked out at the way she throws up. They took her for an Upper GI and told me that she for sure has Reflux. So now we need to figure out how to feed her without aggravating it. It's still going slow, 74 cc's over a 2 hour period. She's off the blender and just on oxygen. She's between 1/4 and 1/2 liter, so we're getting close to our base use at home. I still have no idea when she'll be coming home. Most likely this weekend. My fingers are crossed!
