I don’t think I’ve ever been so happy in my life.  She now has a fighting chance and I hope she’ll only get stronger by the day.  She has had Nickel frantic and whining with her cries.  I’ve worked her mouth over the nipples but she’s been too weak.  I cried when I held her against her mom and she started nursing.

It’s been a  9 hour struggle for a 9 hour old girl.  I think she’s gonna make it.
