Well today was a great day for us in the NICU! Renna got off the ventilator about 9:00 this morning. It was a great way to start my morning. We are so excited. She is still on an oxygen canula but seems to be doing great with it so far. It is so wonderful to see her little face without the huge tube in her mouth (of course she still has the feeding tube, but you know what I mean). So this evening at 5:00 I finally got to hold my sweetheart! I was super excited. I can't even tell you how much I missed holding her for one week...it seems like she has grown a ton. We had an enjoyable kangaroo time, I am convinced she missed it too! The only sad part is her little hoarse cry. It is so sad and pathetic when she gets upset that this barely audible hoarse cry comes out. Poor little angel! But things are now looking up for her. Hopefully she continues to do well and doesn't need the ventilator again. Her incision seems to be healing great and she seems a lot less painful. We think the only thing bothering her now is her throat, as I can only imagine how irritated it is. Renna weighed 3lbs. 9oz. tonight, even without the vent tube. Reagan has some exciting news as she has now surpassed the 2lb and moved right on to the 3lb. club! We are so proud of her, she weighed 3lbs. 2oz. tonight. Look out Renna, little sister is coming up fast! So as I mentioned today was a blessed day in the NICU. What an answered prayer for our little Renna Ann.
