It's been a little while since I posted, but Abby and I have just been at home enjoying each other.... I am starting to get a little more sleep, but coordinating pumping and feeding makes it a little difficult. Abby continues to eat more and more. We just love having her home.... An In Home Care Nurse came for a follow up appointment today at our home. She was seeing how Abigail was doing and gave us some great tips on things to be doing to help her developmentally.
We went to her pulmonologist(sp?) yesterday. The doctor joins the club of all of us who are so very impressed by Abigail's progress. She said that she looked good and sounded great!! Abigail still needs to have oxygen, but we will start to lower her flow setting in a couple of weeks. She still has mild BPD (don't know how to spell all of the words, but it is basically mild chronic lung disease), but should still be able to out grow it with age -- standard preemie stuff.... On the way to the appointment we stopped at the pediatrician for her two week weigh in: 8lbs 4oz. Way to go Abby!!
Sixteen Weeks - She is getting so long.
A great place to hang out...
Hanging out with Daddy!!
*You can see in the last two pictures that a tornado has hit our house as we try to get situated with having Abigail home. We continue to work on getting it under control-because it is not how John and I like things.*
Ready to go on our first walk - We were told by one doctor that walks were okay, but the pulmonologist said not to... it was fun while it lasted.
