I thought I'd add a few more pictures now that things are settling down a bit. Anna really does look perfect; she's just so petite! They are working on weaning her off the IV, which has been supplying her extra glucose. As long as her blood sugar levels stay steady, she should have it out today or tomorrow. It's just nice to see some change and progress. She continues to eat well.
Being here in the NICU, I see a lot of other babies who are sick. Of course, I don't know the details of their condition, but judging from their size, number of cords attached, and how often their alarms go off, it's obvious that they are quite sick. I realize how lucky we are that Anna is so healthy, with no fear of long-term problems. It's heartbreaking to see new parents come in and not know if their child will be okay. I've never been so appreciative of good health.
I'll work on getting better pictures of Anna, but she's always so bundled up!
