Hi Ladies!
So my little IUGR baby was brought into the world Thursday night at 33wks. She was sent at 2 days old to Sick Kids in Toronto because she is having trouble breathing.
Thankfully she is in the best hands in the Province - and doing a little better each day.
She was 3.6 lbs and is a little sweetie!

**Update**
So today the doctors seemed very happy that she is moving from the ventilator that forces her to breathe, onto a ventilator that senses her breath and assists her. The doctors want to see if she is going to breathe on her own, and they dont want her getting lazy and letting the machine breathe for her. She is so sweet and little. The hour commute to see her is trying but I would travel 10 just to hold her hand.
I am anxiously waiting until the day I can hold and kiss her.
Thanks for the well wishes!

***Update- Mar 3rd***
Hi Ladies
So Reese spent one month in the NicU and is now at home. We came home on Thursday - exactly 4 weeks after she was born. We are so happy to be home safe and sound with our 4.5 yr old and the new wee one.

She is doing so well. All of the breathing issues are resolved and we are working on her gaining weight steadily. She is currently a whopping 4.5 lbs! So cute
Here is a link to amazing photos we had taken yesterday. Bear with me, Ive never posted photos before.
