We just gave her some breast milk in a syringe and so far she seems to be taking it well!! We're alternating this with the glucose water. We have heard babies crying all the time. This and so many other reminders are all around us of what life could be and is not. It feels so good and right as a mother to be able to do this one thing for her.
just another note - Rachel is so loved by the nurses here!!! During the last two nights we have had a good amount of rest while she is passed around. Everyone wants to hold our little girl. During a stretch of 4 hours tonight, she wasn't in her bed one time!
We're looking forward to moving to the Hospice later and to being together as a family.
