Tuesday, November 20, 2007 - Afternoon Update

Big news today!!! First of all, she gained another 60 grams or so last night which puts her at about 4 lbs 5 ½ oz. I think she just wants to be a chubby baby like her mom and dad used to be. I was beyond chubby as a baby (I’m sure my parents will vouch for that.) Her eye exam today showed no change once again. She is still at stage 1, zone 2. She will continue to be checked every week as it could still progress to the point where laser surgery would be necessary. We continue to pray every week, however, that it does not. And. . . . .she is being moved out of the NICU today. She is going to be placed in one of the satellite rooms with 2 other babies. This is what we were praying for as there will be less exposure to noise and other people/babies. I’m assuming we will get a little more privacy. The satellite rooms are basically hospital rooms converted into special care nursery rooms. We are so excited!!! Please continue to pray for my precious Olivia.

Yay! Congratulations!!!! Praise God on the ROP exam!!!

I stayed with Kellie in mother/baby (private room) for 3 weeks - I'm glad you get close to that for now! Kellie HATED the SCN - too loud!!! She was too loud for them, too! :-)
