So I turned 24 today and this is my first birthday being a mom! When I walked to Adleigh's isolette I had a little present. It was a little card that had her footprints and it said Happy Birthday Mommy. Love, Adleigh. I was so excited. It was so cute and I can't wait to get a baby book started and put that in there. Although that would require me actually getting some supplies to put together a baby scrapbook. And I have to make two of them so one doesn't feel left out.
Anyway...Adleigh is still doing really well. Wade and I have started praying that Adleigh would soon get down to 4 liters of oxygen (right now she is on 5) and do really well with it. We are also praying that her PDA will be completely closed by her next echo (not sure when that is yet). And our last big request is that she would have an easy time digesting the milk.
When I saw Liana today, I also got a little surprise from her! She had the footprints card that told me happy birthday as well! This was actually the first set of little footprints we have gotten from Liana. They were so cute. Liana had her blood culture and spinal fluid taken today. I got to hold her right after her lumbar puncture (LP) and she seemed to really enjoy it. I think after such a big procedure she just needed to be held by her mommy.
Our specific prayers for Liana are: That the blood culture and LP would come back negative, that her brain ultrasound tomorrow will come back showing her brain is completely healed with no swelling, that she eats again soon and gains weight, and that she would get down to 2 liters on her oxygen (she is on 3 now). Thank you for joining with us in these specific prayers for our girls.
I also ask that you continue to pray for our friends Aimee and Adam Freeman and little Kayleigh. They have found out that their daughter needs surgery, but she is too small for it. Check out their blog to get the full story and how you can pray for them.
