A step in the right direction

Yesterday I walked into the NICU and saw this.
I started crying, it was totally unexpected. She was looking up at me and her eyes would roll back in her head. I got 2 minutes with her. It was so great, I was in a good mood all day. Then they had to sedate her again. She also moved from her oscillatory ventilator to just the regular ventilator. That's a huge step for her. They are hoping to have her on room air in 2 days.
Today she didn't make any progress, but she didn't digress either. Her jaundice is back. Because she is older the lights won't help, so more meds. Thank you everyone for keeping her in your prayers, it means a lot to us.

Ruth Mac was in the NICU, it was so hard not only for our relationship, but being with all the other Mother's and father's too. The staff are so supportive though. She is totally getting the right stuff she needs right now. She is gonna and is it looks like rock your world. How precious..
