Back In My Arms

The picture speaks a 1000 words.

It only took four of us to get Kate and her wires into my arms...for the first time in 15 days! We actually had to move the bed in order for me to be in the middle of the iv lines and the oxygen. I held her for over 90 minutes...fed her two feeding...and just loved on her. She was overall pretty content in my arms and even fell asleep for a little bit.

She continues to make small small improvements. One of the sedative/pain medicines was stopped today and the other two should be tomorrow. She is still having some lung issues...but with some suctioning and breathing treatments...they expect improvements. She did have a low grade fever today, but nothing has come of that. Overall..she looks a lot better...we still have a long road...but she is doing better! That's all we can ask for.

i LOVE your picture! I know she's all drugged up, but she does look good! She's such a good girl not pulling everything out! (my little man had to wear "no no's" the whole time!) Baby steps are good...and you know...Isaac is still on the breathing treatments for his lungs. They said he will be for a year or so. It's crazy that Kate is doing almost the same things that Isaac did to me...just trying to add more grey to our head!!!
You look good Krista...take care!

I'm SO GLAD you got to hold your baby again. That's a very long time to not be able to do that.
I love the picture. :)

One step at a time! Looks like mommy is happy with the situation, not so sure about Miss Kate! ;o) Hoping each day is one day closer to being home where you all belong!
