I wasn't able to see her Sunday or Monday, but made it up there yesterday. It was slow going, but not too bad, the drive home after dark was the slickest part. I stayed for 4.5 hours and enjoyed every minute of it. That sounds like a long time, but not having seen her since Saturday, well you can imagine that it just wasn't long enough. Since OKC schools are closed today, Beans' MDO program will be closed so we'll wait until Brad gets home from work before heading up to the hospital. That will be good thought because we've been wanting to take Beans up to visit and Brad hasn't seen her since Saturday either, so he will want to go.

Personal Note to MultiMomma: We had the chicken noodle soup last night and it was DELICIOUS! Thanks!

So glad to hear things are continuing to improve for Maggie.

Your DH is right- talking with a counselor would be a wonderful help. Don't resist it, just do it!

(She is being fed through a tube, so they check before each feeding to see how much she has not digested (residual) and then gage her next feeding on that.) She stills has occasional episodes of heart & breathing irregularities but those are "normal" for preemies as the signals from their brains don't always make it to the intended destination on time. This is because those nerves are not fully formed yet, however this will improve with time as they continue to grow with her.

I've set up a page at CaringBridge.org for her so I can keep all our friends and family update in a more timely manner. Please feel free to visit her page and leave us a note in the guestbook if you like. Here is a link to her site. (http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/maggieisoldaray)

Thanks to all of you for your continued support and good wishes, we need all of that we can get!
Everyone take some time to check on Cristi and Maggie, they've been going through some tuff stuff.

Thanks for posting!

Sounds like they've been on quite the roller coaster the last week. Hopefully it's the only bad spot & Maggie just gets better & better from now on.

I'm sorry this week has been so scary. My thoughts are with you and your family. Maggie sounds like such a little fighter though! I can't believe how much she has grown!

Thank you all so much for your continued good vibes. Maggie needs all the help she can get.

She IS gaining weight and weighed 2 lbs 14 oz last night! She has now doubled her birth weight and for that we are extremely grateful. She looks like a completely different baby now. She is having fewer desats and the bradys are almost gone completely.

I am so happy for all of you and how well your pregnancies are going and how wonderful it is when someone's little loved one arrives. Good luck and much love to you all!
