What's on your mind today?

I am thinking about how amazing it is that I've hit 31 weeks. Honestly, I don't think I really believed I'd make it this far, and every week I get past 27, I'm more surprised!

That's great, Beth! I really hope you make it to full term!

I am thinking about what a difference a week makes in the NICU. Chloe's liver numbers are all in the normal range now (without blood products), the u/s they did on her abdomen yesterday showed improvement in her liver and ascites, her mucosa biopsy came back negative, she is on bolus feeds and up to 3 lbs 7 oz! Just last Thursday I was crying my eyes out after speaking with the GI specialist about the possible need for a liver transplant. I am just hoping and praying she keeps improving!
