Starting last week, Laura and I have been praying a novena to Our Lady of La Leche and she has really been coming through for us. Before we started, Lily would only drink about 8ccs and there was one nurse, who happens to be her primary nurse, who wasn't very encouraging when it came to feeding her by the bottle. She would always explain that Lily did about 5ccs or so and once the milk hit the back of her throat, she acted as if she didn't want it and so the nurse quit and fed her through the tube. But, since we began the novena, the primary nurse hasn't worked (at least not with Lily) and Lily has had wonderful nurses instead. One day, our favorite nurse, who does a fantastic job with Lily, wasn't supposed to work, but was called in to take a shift--which happened to be with Lily. When Lily comes home, Laura and I are seriously considering making a pilgrimage to St. Augustine to visit the Shrine of Our Lady of La Leche.
Please keep praying!
Our Lady of La Leche, pray for us!
