11/30/09 Milk

Today Juliana began to receive 1 cc of milk every 3 hours. For her first feeding, she digested half of the amount. She will soon get the hang of it. Her settings are similar to yesterday with no major changes. Jen was finally able to see her and is having some kangaroo time as I type this. She is going to try to do 2 or 3 hours, basically as long as they will let her! I am working a little bit today, first time in about 6 weeks. It is nice to get back into it.

I think someone asked in the comments how many visitors we have to our website. Well, I dug into the statistics and we have between 1,000 to 2,900 unique visitors each day! Wow, I never thought there would be such a large amount of interest!

  5. I’m glad that Mrs. Payne is feeling better and is able to hold Juliana today. I have been praying for her fever to go away! Thanks for keeping the website updated. . . from one of the 1,000 to 2,900 who check it regularly:)

  6. Way to Eat, little girl! I’m glad that Jen is feeling better today and afebrile. It must be so tough on the days you can’t spend time with your little angel. Thanks so much for all the updates, Jason. You all are still in our constant prayers!

  7. How exciting! I know Jennifer must be thrilled to be back to kangaroo care after missing it for a while. We can use more news days like this!

    An orchestra member’s mother from New England who has never posted a comment told me last night she has been following this story from the very beginning. There are many, many who care, and it means a great deal to our whole family.

  8. Oh, I’m so glad Jen gets to hold Juliana again! I know it’s been awful when you can’t hold your baby! She’s still so tiny! Mommy milk will make her grow and grow! Did Jen get to “feed” her?

    Wow! I can’t believe the number of hits. Many prayers going up on your behalf. God answers!

    See you SOON! Love, Grammy
