Guess What

Last night Ava's nurse asked me if I wanted to hold Ava...sooooooo, I did. Granted she was on top of a pillow, but hey I will take it how I get it. She slept the whole time, even during the move. However, when she had to go back to bed she woke up and stayed up for a short period of time. This little girl is sleeping like crazy the last couple of days. I think it has to do with the weaning of the drugs. Once they start weaning her from the one drugs they started her on different ones to help with withdrawls. It seems to be helping because she is zonked out. She received a little more blood today because her hemoglobin was a little low...so she is a little puffy right now. Other than that no other changes have taken place.

Isn't it just the best feeling ever to have your precious baby in your arms, even if the pillow is between you...I would always take that over not getting to hold Gabi at all. I remember how excited I was to hold her for the first time. And since you got to do it once, be sure to ask every nurse, as long as she is doing ok they should let you. Just make sure they know you have before, that seems to make a difference in their decision. I think they got a little tired of me asking, but if there was a chance of getting to I definitely wanted it!

Some time next week I need to come see you, I have something for you:) Maybe we can do lunch one day!

Love and prayers!!!

Sleep is good, the body heals during that time. I am glad to hear you got to hold her....nothing better than holding your baby and being heart to heart with them.
