Big Girl

Well its official! Brielle is still the smallest but not the youngest anymore. Shes getting to be a big girl :0 Dr Abe said that little miss is doing better! Always nice to hear it from the Dr. even if I know she is. She is getting another Blood transfusion today. Josh said to me today "At this rate she isnt going to have anymore of our blood left in her" Lol Funny guy! She will have a cranial u/s tomorrow to check for more cysts. Monday she will have her ECHO on her heart done so they can determine when they will do the PDA ligation. She does have confirmed pneumonia now so they are taking her off her current antibiotic and switching her to the pneumonia one (dont ask me names hehe) for 5 days. Laura said that Dr Meyers wrote we can hold her as long as she tolerates and as often. So we arent restricted to the twice a day anymore!! YES!! So I told her I would be there every 3 hours to hold her then like 5 times a day, and Josh said "Only You" and Laura basically said "Dont push it" lol OKay OKay, I will just take my turn in the morning and try to stay home. But Bris nurse Pam was telling me this morning that Africas NICU doesnt have incubators so they actually pay women to Kangaroo babies 24 hours a day. I think I could do that job!!! I would hold little peanut all day if they'd let me. I dont know what I am going to do when she comes home and I can hold her when I want and for how long I want! Someday...........


  1. Josh and Amber It was great to see Brielle being held by her daddy!! She sure seemed to be content and resting comfortably and "dad" looked pretty content too. Keep the faith . Always saying prayers for Brielle. Take good care. Love Debbie

  2. Love the new blog look:) Love to hear good news, especially when it comes from the doctor:) Praying for more good news tomorrow! One more day closer to bringing her home! Love you guys!
