Going home?

Yesterday was another busy day. Anne and I went to Riley early in the morning to meet with one of the speech therapists to figure out what we need to work on to get Whitney to take a bottle. We worked with the eyedropper before her ng tube feeding to practice swallowing. The speech therapist scheduled a swallow study http://www.childrensmemorial.org/depts/rehab/swallowstudy.aspx for 8:30 a.m. this morning. This is the reason I am writing this post at 6a.m... we have an early day today... but an exciting one, Whitney is hopefully going home with us today! We had a chest xray and heart echo yesterday morning and yesterday afternoon Dr. Brown came to talk with us and said he was pleased by what he saw on both the xray and the echo. Whitney's oxygen was taken off yesterday and she seemed to be doing well all day without the oxygen. I am pretty sure as long as she had a good night we will probably get to go home this afternoon! Yeah!

Here are some pictures of our three visitors yesterday:
