Maggie is doing better. Things are always changing so please keep praying. Those first few days are critical. These are things they are concerned about:
1. Oxygen saturation needs to be higher
2. Blood pressure needs to stabilize
3. Overall state of the lungs needs to improve
4. No Brain bleed
We are praying for these things. Justin is with her most of the time and I have been just been in. She looks so healthy for a baby her age. Her coloring is good they have her sedated but she still moves and makes faces. For a baby for what she has been through she has no visuble birth defects or muscle malformations. She truly is a miracle! Her lungs are not where a 29 weeker usually are but a lot better than expected for a baby with little or no fluid. It took them several hours but they finally got her ventilated and stable. She is on a high frequency ventilator and seems to be responding better than the first machine she was on.
It's so hard not to be in there with her nonstop. We've been so attched for months and now I feel so helpless. I held her hand and touched her precious blonde head. She is our precious miracle and I am not ceasing to pray for her to do well in the NICU and come home as soon as possible.
Thank you for praying. Please continue to pray for those specific things and that this first week she will do great.
