happy one week...sort of


Ally Claire is a week old today and she is still celebrating in the NICU. She has been moved to progressive care, is in an open bed, eating as much as she wants and doesn't have her IV any more. We are still trying to wean her off of her oxygen, so please pray about that. she is mainly having trouble keeping her oxygen levels up when she is sleeping. I'm not sure when she will come home and it's hard to keep my spirits up, but I guess I know they won't keep her forever. I am interested to know what the next step is though. So just pray that she decides that it IS important to breathe when she sleeps!

you are so strong! I can't imagine leaving my baby at the hospital, however you have not yet lost your faith in the Lord and he has not overlooked you or your family. AC seems to be doing much better everyday and I am sure that in no time she will be home! You are in our prayers!

Saying lots of prayers for AC and Mommy and Daddy too! Patience is a virtue I was born without so I can't imagine what you are going through! Keep the faith!

You've definitely got some prayer warriors out there, including me. AC is such a cutie and I know you will have her home soon. Stay strong and keep leaning on the everlasting arm of the Lord and on the thoughts and prayers of friends and family. Give AC a kiss for all of us!

I'm praying for little AC and you all! It's hard enough when everything is completely okay, I just can't imagine going through all of that! Stay strong!

How beautiful! What a great picture of your new baby girl. I bet the boys are so excited, and the both of you must be feeling so many emotions. Right now the Lord is taking care of her and she is in the right place. You would rather her be in the hospital with these breathing complications than at home I'm sure. She will be home soon. All things work together for good, to them that love the Lord. Take care.
