update on Willowwell, Willow has completely the 10 days of antibiotics needed to keep her from getting sick with the chorio infection i had. She started on a CPAP machine (which gives pressured oxygen), and moved down to a nasal cannula, then down to room air yesterday! She also got to get off her heat lamp yesterday and be put into itty bitty preemie clothes, which are baggy. She has a little tube down her nose which is how she gets fed. My milk came in and i am pumping all the time. She has started nuzzling at the breast, though she is still to little to understand nursing. She is back up to 4lbs, after dropping down several ounces.
IT is so wonderful to have a live baby girl in my arms. i have been waiting a long time. they practically have to kick me out of the NICU to go eat, lol, because i never put her down!
