Blair's New Crib

We got a good report today on Blair. The doctor she had made significant strides over the last 48 hours. Her x-rays were good this morning. The left side looked pretty clear and there were only a few secretions showing up on the right side. Her stats are good, and she is tolerating feedings well again, so we are thankful for answered prayers. We do still have some time though before she is completely well and we can think about taking her home, so we will keep praying for improvement!

Today was also graduation day for Blair! She has been moved to an isolette and got to wear clothes for the first time! Poor thing's been in her birthday suit for almost a month. I had some gowns in the car, so her nurse even put one of Blair's own gowns on her. They move babies to isolettes when they are no longer in need of critical care or if they are too small to keep themselves warm. In Blair's case, the isolette is not as much for warmth, but it is to give her a cozy environment with less noise. She looked comfortable in there, pacifier in place, of course!

Ash,
I go on the blog at least a dozen times a day to see our precious miracle child and I just about cry every time. Thank you for keeping it up. We are so ready for her to come home. In just four short weeks (long ones for you and Brad) so many have come to love her so much. I am overwhelmed and humbled by number of people who continue to ask and call about the three of you, and respond to the blog and facebook. It would be cool if you could show some of the awesome people and machines that saved Blair's life.
I so look forward to the days when Blair and her future brothers, sisters, and cousins come visit us and we can play "monster".
I love you and Brad and Baby Blair so much!
