Mercedes had her i.v.'s removed today. She (like the other two) is off the bilirubin lights so they have stopped poking her in the foot to get blood. Her poor black and blue feet has started looking pretty and pink again.
Mercedes hasn't started feeding with a bottle yet. She is sucking mightily on her pacifier, and the nurse said that she would probably start using a bottle in the next day or two. I am just amazed at how fast she is getting better. She is getting bigger every day. She is still a little less than a pound behind her brothers, but she is a little fighter. She will catch up if they don't watch it.
