Look what beautiful little lady opened her left eye yesterday! Luckily my mom and I were here when she looked out on to the world for the first time. We're anxiously awaiting the second eye opening up.
Saturday was a bit of a roller-coaster day for us. Elizabeth was up and down on her oxygen concentration levels all day. She seemed uncomfortable a lot, and at one point, when her temperature probe came undone, her bed heated up, causing her to overheat, which raised her heart rate to over 200. She's spoiled us with her steadiness up until this point, and the doctors and nurses had warned us that this wouldn't be permanent. I just wasn't prepared and was emotionally drained by the end of the day.
On Monday, Lizzy is having a brain ultrasound to check for any bleeding on her brain. We are praying that her lungs are the only challenge she has to contend with and her brain will be fine. Lizzy and I are also doing kangaroo care tomorrow, when she gets to come out of the incubator and lay on my chest for a few hours. I cannot wait! I think I'm going to have to have a box of Kleenex at my side.
Thank you for all of your continued support, prayers and comments!
