You've Got the....


Isn't she just adorable! She has been tube free on her face all night. Her oxygen levels are still just on the border....when she falls fast asleep, sometimes she needs the cannula right next to her face (not taped!) I'm so GLAD to see my little girl's complete face.
Today...the intensivist said: "Let's make a regular kid out of ya" So...she gets to eat what, when and how much she wants. We will start some simple baby foods today and she how she does. I would love it if she went a little longer than 3 hours at night...we were so past the newborn baby thing! Thanks to our great night nurse who did the 5am feeding...I was able to sleep from 3-8! That's not gonna cut it for long. Plus...the doctor said we may possibly move upstairs if the surgeon okays it! We still have till Friday for IV antibiotics...but at least it's a move in the right direction.
Well...maybe I'll start getting "things together" down here in Room 8! It's amazing how much "stuff" you can accumlate in 3 weeks.
I will praise You, O Lord, with all my heart;
I will tell of all Your wonders.
I will be glad and rejoice in You;
I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High.
Psalm 9: 1-2
