I got to come up to the hospital to see our sweet Allianna today . She is doing very well. About as good as a baby her size could be doing right now. She is up to 4cc's on her breast milk and starting to gain weight. She had lost 2oz after birth, but is up to 1lb 8oz now. I think she is the same length though. She is doing very well on the new ventilator, down to 21bpm. We're hoping that she'll be off the ventilator by Halloween, then we'll be able to hear our sweet baby cry for the first time.

I have realized a lot since having her. How you should be thankful for every minute you get to spend with your children. I wish I could spend every minute of every day with her, but I am lucky if I get to spend 4 days a week with her. You should also be thankful for your good health. I have had to go through a lot with this pregnancy, then watch our sweet angel have to go through even more and we're not even half way done yet. And lastly, just simply getting to hold and cuddle your kids. I have not been able to hold or cuddle our precious baby girl. I keep dreaming of that day!

Here's a picture of her from today. She had her beautiful eyes open

I am so glad she is getting bigger and stronger! You are so right, we take so much for granted! I think about you often. Stay strong mama.

Thank you ladies! Every good day she has is a blessing from God. She will be two weeks old on Sunday and has done excellent so far. I just can't wait to take my sweet baby girl home and cuddle with her

Are they giving you any idea as to how long (total, that is) they expect her to remain in NICU, Amanda? I mean obviously, it's a day to day thing...but in a best case scenario situation?

Her doctor told me that in best case scenario we would be looking at her going home sometime close to Christmas, so about 3 months total.

I have been thinking about you and your family a lot lately. I was so happy to read the progress she's made. How wonderful! It sounds like she is getting wonderful care. I will continue to pray for your family and her continued progress! The day of your first cuddles with your baby will be a wonderful reality soon. Much love to you!
