Day 17 NICU - 1st chance to hold her

We each held her for about 45 minutes. Her stats were great the entire time. It was better than I thought it would be. I'd forgotten how satisfying the limp weight of a sleeping baby is.
Behind the scenes - what it took to get her from her bed to a lap
She's lost a lot of accouterments. She's down to only one tree of meds (above, to her right). The pump sitting alone to her left is the milk for her NG tube. They removed the PICC line from her leg and her catheter so all she has on her lower half now is the pulse oximeter and her ID tag. The space around her crib is so spacious. For comparison, the picture below was taken on her first day of life.

Oh, we are so excited for all of you! I have to admit, both Jared and I teared up seeing the pictures of you getting to hold her for the first time. What an amazing time and place we live in. We are thinking of you and your precious girls, sending healing thoughts and love your way. Yay, Clarity! You're doing it!
