THE GIRLS

Hey everyone. Just a quick update on Lucy and her adventure in the ICU.
The chest xray from Thursday was read as possible pneumonia so we've decided that she should stay for a total of 7 days of IV antibiotic treatment just in case. Clinically, she's great. No abnormal blood work, no lethargy or signs that she's sick. She's learning the nursing thing fairly well and is taking some formula to supplement while the milk is being "delivered". It's a bummer that she has to be here and we hate that she can't go home right now 'cause that's where she belongs. We're not used to being in the hospital and to be honest, I'm not too keen on doctors...Either way, though, she's here for another 5 days or so and we're blessed that she's probably the healthiest (and biggest) kid in the NICU. They just wheeled a 1 1/2 pounder past us on the way to the back of the ICU and it's tough not to feel guilty that little Lucy is doing so well. Welp, that's about it for now. Here's some more video of Kay and Lucy.

What a beautiful baby! Sorry, you have to take things a little differently than planned--but you'll be home together in no time. We're praying for Lucy AND her parents!

Looks like you have an angel in your midst. She's absolutely beautiful! What a difference a day makes...one day it's woman, man and dog and the next it's mom, dad, bundle of baby bringing joy without end......and dog. The perfect family. We love you. You are in our prayers.
