We are finally getting a taste of what it's like to have a newborn! Both Rebecca and Scott got to hold Annabelle for hours today...it was wonderful! She is gradually becoming less "wired"...we are down to just the NG tube, chest leads & a peripheral iv. She's also got some monitors on for her pulse ox & heartbeat but those aren't too scary to try to work around. She had her chest lines pulled yesterday and her other umbilical cord line that was put in at birth pulled today. So far, she has handled the compressed feedings pretty well. She has had a little spit up but nothing too big. Please continue to pray for her feedings to go well!
Wyatt got to spend all day (literally) with Susannah! He was pooped when we got him this evening and is already asleep. He is looking forward to seeing his little sister tomorrow. We got permission from Annabelle's nurse to bring him back to see her. Wyatt hasn't seen her since Thursday before her surgery so tomorrow is going to be very special for all of us! He has been asking to see her for days so we're really excited for him to get to see her again.
Annabelle was the most awake today as she has been since birth. It was so fun to watch her looking back and forth between Scott and me. She definitely knows who we are and was very alert as to take in as much as she could.
Hope you enjoy the pictures! We sure enjoyed our daughter today!
