Today was tough. It’s almost 11pm and her tally is 530mls. She is resisting the bottle. She’ll act like she wants to eat, latch onto the bottle, then quickly pull away from it, and repeat that sequence several times until we give up. We have to honor her choice when she says, “no.”
She is still happy and energetic. We try our best not to worry about tubes and other interventions and hold onto our faith in Stella! Today was a hopeful day, with Obama taking office, and we are trying our best to maintain that kind of positive energy. It’s hard as hell, but we can do it. We have to!
