Littlest Disney Fan
Tiny Little Feet
So great feeling her take my finger.
So, I know that the hards times are coming, but I have had a great last couple of days. Abby is doing such a super job!! We have so much fun going to visit her. Today she kept moving her head from where the nurse was putting it (trying to help its shaping). It was always in my direction, and the nurse said it could be because she was hearing my voice. It could also be because she likes that side, but her eyes were open through most of it -- and I like to feel like she just likes her mommy.
Yesterday's nurse said she was a feisty little one - as a compliment. I am glad, because I think I it is helping her do well. Her daddy's Italian blood is coming through. We have had so much fun with her during our last few visits. It is almost like playing with her. It is so fun to watch her with her eyes open - they keep opening wider and wider. As a biased new mommy, she is just so cute. I get more and more excited for when we get to start "Kangaroo Care" -- pretty much holding her.
Her counts continue to be good, and they have started to decrease the humidity in her incu-bed (not sure what you officially call it). Today she also graduated from the sunbathing for her jaundice. It is great to always be able to see her face. Preemies commonly have a heart murmur, but they still can't find one on Abby. She also continues to mostly receive room air through her ventilator.
I don't know if the Lord is keeping me in a little bubble and preparing me for some hard times, but I just feel so very blessed. People keep asking what John and I need, but we are so great right now. However, I keep reminding myself this could easily change and probably will.... Thank you all for the continued thoughts and prayers. They are helping....
