Elizabeth had a busy day today. She has come a long way since the surgery. With every day that goes by mom and dad are more and more convinced that it was the right decision. She is off the ventilator and seems to be handling it reasonably well. She has to do a lot more work on her own and may not last very long. Elizabeth also had some of mom's milk today (at a rate of 1 cc every 4 hours), and at the 20:00 diaper check things looked promising.
