I was totally blown away. So much love and support from my work family, even though they're 3 hours away and haven't met Bonnie yet. A lot of this stuff was for Henry, which he was super thrilled about too. His birthday has been going on for about a week now :) Thanks work folks, you made my day.
Meanwhile, back at the hospital, Bonnie continues to amaze and astound. She has started giving the briefest flickers of a smile (which I have yet to catch on camera). I thought I saw a smile yesterday, but it was confirmed when I walked in today and Bonnie's nurse said that she had seen a few smiles today too. After all those days of ECMO when it almost didn't feel like there was a baby in there, Bonnie has decided to make up for lost time and make her personality known. She's still on a tiny bit of oxygen via her nasal cannula, but that was being weaned today. She got her arterial line removed this afternoon, so one less tube to be attached to. Hurray! She's up to 2 ml/hour on her feedings and is tolerating that well so far. Her versed was weaned a bit today and so far so good, but it can take awhile (12ish hours, I'm told) before withdrawal symptoms show up after a wean.
Here are a couple pictures from today.
