...and I finally got to hold my girl. It was amazing. She feels like *my* baby now.
Two thoughts on this. 1--No mother should ever have to wait that long to hold her baby. And 2--No baby should ever have to wait that long to be held.
Nothing but good news today, friends. In addition to me being able to hold Bonnie, she has continued to pee well, have good blood gases, and have a beautiful chest x-ray. She also got one of her chest tubes and a drain (from her hernia repair) taken out today. The plan tomorrow is to remove the other chest tube as well as her dialysis catheter. Her ventilator settings are so low right now that if they wanted to wean her much further, she'd be off the ventilator and on (probably) CPAP.
So much to be thankful for. God is good.
