Miss Moonpie arrived last night at 11:15 at 29w2d. She is 14″ long, weighs 3 pounds 4 ounces. She hates dirty/ wet diapers and keeps pulling off her heart monitor leads. The NICU nurse wants to know where she gets her feistiness from. She grasps at fingers, sucks her pacifier, and is breathing room level oxygen with the help of a Bubble CPAP. I haven’t been to see her yet, but Shannon has visited several times.
We still face a lot of hurdles before she can come home, but she seems to be up to the challenge.
update: I’m doing fine. The residual meds from the epidural are wearing off and the lack of sleep is really catching up to me. Did get to see Olivia Moonpie finally and will get a picture up soon.
