Prayers please

This has been a very difficult day for me. I have not seen Abigail in over 24 hours as I have the start of pneumonia. (I've never had pneumonia in my life!) Ryan is at home with pneumonia also. I'm terrified that I exposed Olivia to it and as a former 23 weeker, she cannot get this! So, I cannot be with my husband or either one of my daughters and I can't begin to tell you how depressed I feel. I want to be cuddling and bonding with my new baby and I can't. Please pray for me and my family as we just want to be all together again. Thank you to my parents for helping me remain sane and calm and for taking such good care of Olivia. She's getting spoiled so much, I doubt she'll even want to come home!

Thanks to a dear friend for taking this picture of Abigail for me. One of the few things helping me through all of this is knowing that Olivia's previous NICU nurses are taking great care of Abigail! She's in great hands and is doing wonderfully. I wouldn't be surprised if she could come home next week (hoping her mom and dad are better by then!)

Oh my dear. I am so, so sorry to hear to this. As the mum of a former 23 weeker myself the word pneumonia strikes fear into my heart. Oh course you just want to be with your new baby girl, bonding and cuddling with her.

I'm just hoping that Abigail will be home with you just as soon as you've made a full recovery.

Hoping and praying that your family are all together again, as soon as possible. Hang on in there mama xo
