One tough chick
After a long night I awoke to a freshly washed baby with another hospital accessory. Our kind night nurse brought in a little purple bow to make sure everyone knows our precious Maaike is a girl. Some how this simple bow softened everything and started us off on a great stride making day. The ventilator is now gone and she is breathing all on her own through her new air port. Then, late this afternoon, Maaike surprised everyone again by drinking from a bottle and bypassing a feeding tube. We are so proud.We have many more steps to go, including my five day tracheostomy care class, but we are glad to be on our way.
