Abby's nurse said it well -- It is amazing how something so little can impact so many people.
Each Sunday it seems that I have been remembering the weekend Abby was born. Strange how something can go by so fast and slow at the same time.... Abby was weighing 3 lbs 1 oz today. She has a different CPAP mask and was also able to get the pressure setting lowered this week -- getting closer to graduating to high flow oxygen. Her reflux is still giving her issues, but she seems to be building up more strength. The medicine must be working. She is tolerating cares better and is keeping her oxygen levels lower than before. She is doing such a great job!!
We continue to feel so wonderfully blessed. I have had some neat experiences - mostly talking with people this week. I just feel so much gratitude in my heart -- I plan to post about it soon.
My ward/neighbordhood friends threw us a shower this week. It was so much fun!! Thanks girls!! I look forward to when Abby is big and healthy enough to join your walks and play days!!
Showing off her new CPAP mask.
I thought the preemie onesie would still be HUGE on her, but it seems to almost fit.
Getting her all nestled in bed for a nap before we left her for the night.

BATH TIME!! The nurse had some oxygen making bubbles for a jacuzzi bath. It is fun how they try and make things fun for the situation. Abby tolerated the bath well -- didn't really get upset. She gets to be free from the CPAP for a few minutes. (The oxygen mask stays near because she can't do it all by herself yet -- Yeah! for posed pictures!)
Happy Six Weeks!-next to the bear
The nurse said we needed to be sure and take a picture of her in the Cinderella stocking.
