Discharge papers say she will "start eating within the next 3 days." I read that to mean that she may eat in a few hours, 24-hours, etc. The "Follow up" section indicates you should contact them if she exhibits "a lack of appetite."

Those with more expertise can weigh in, but I read the whole to mean you should be concerned if she has not eaten by the third day.

Again, I'm so happy that she is home with you.
