Update - July 17
I was able to get to the hospital early this morning, just in time to give the nurse my "liquid gold" from my hard work of pumping. She was thrilled to get it, as Abby hasn't been keeping down the formula very well. Breast milk is much easier to digest, and after she got my milk it all stayed down. It was so nice to know that I was able to help her in that!
I was also able to change her diaper again when I got there, as well as take her temp. The moment I opened her diaper she peed straight up at me, soaking her blankies and her onesie. (Yes, today is the first day of wearing clothes!!) Since she was soaked, I was able to wash her up and change her little shirt. It took me FOREVER! She's so delicate, and not at all like William, where I can just flip it over his head and call it good.
Anyway, it was great to spend several hours with her this morning, just rocking her and bonding with her. She was very alert, eyes open for a lot of the time, another first, since with all previous visits she's been very groggy/asleep.
It's my birthday today, so John is bbq-ing and then later I hope to go back to the hospital. Not quite the birthday I thought I would have, but an amazing one nonetheless.
Thanks to all who've been praying for our little gal. God is good!
