I love when people compliment Alyssa. Today a doctor came in the room. She was looking at Alyssa and I turned and looked at her. It looked like she was thinking and then she said "She's wonderful." I couldn't help but feel happy and so proud. I am also so happy when they say how good she is doing or when they are able to decrease something. I am filled with love and pride for my sweet little girl. Like today when the nurse told me that she was off all of her blood pressure medicines! Woo hoo! Or when the nurse told me that she had a 17 cc diaper. Who would have thought that we would want to jump up and down for a wet diaper? They are also adding lipids to her drip which will give her more calories to help fatten her up. Her weight is double what it was when she was born, but it is just from the swelling from all the liquids they give her. But the more she pees the more it will help the swelling.
Today when I went in after shift change I had a wonderful surprise. The nurse put on a pink little bow and Jamie and I just melted when we saw her. She just looks so precious with the pink bow. We may not be able to dress her but we can accessorize!
