I got to hold my baby today! And she tolerated it really well - no numbers bouncing all over the place. Today was a test to see how she'd do and she did great. It was quite the production to move her and all her wires over to me and it took 2 nurses. I only held her for 20-30 minutes, but it made my day. I get to go back tomorrow and do it again. I also met with Dr. Lewis (Louis, I don't know) and she told me that her xrays of her lungs and bowels looked really good today. In fact, she said her lungs look "fabulous". However, that valve has opened back up and is causing troubles again. They are going to schedule surgery for sometime next week, it looks like. So in the meantime I'm praying that God closes that thing up for good and the surgery doesn't have to happen. I'll keep you posted.
Other news.... I became an aunt again today. Congratulations to Shannon and Patricia on the birth of Jachin Hope! So exciting! Our little girls are less than 1 month apart.
