Dec 15

Maggie has had a rough few days and she is not as steady in her breathing as she has been and they can't really figure out why. It's been four or five days of ups and downs and I still don't feel like we have a lot of answers as to why. We are reminded once again that our precious baby is still so fragile and we must not cease to pray for her health and continue to trust the Lord. We are praying also that God will give her doctors and nurses wisdom and guidance in how to best care for her.

They told us today that she definitely won't come home before Christmas. Even though I was so nervous about possibly bringing her home sooner, I was still disappointed to hear this. I just want her to be safely in our arms at home! Hopefully she will start improving and be able to come home in a few weeks.

Poor justin has had a cold and hasn't been able to see Maggie since Friday. Please pray that we can both stay healthy so we can be up there with our daughter. Also that Maggie would be protected from all these flu season germs and viruses and not get sick.


  1. Dear Lee,
    Thank you for this blog. I read the whole thing - from birth to now. Maggie is such a miracle, and you are an amazing mom! I am so glad that she is doing so well. It is strange to read this, as I feel like I am reading my story, exactly. From the separation anxiety right after birth, to being scared to return to Mom duties, to the daily ups and downs of the NICU, and even the the health issues of our babies, to the feelings of freedom, the frustration with pumping. Everything. Wow. Know that you are not alone in this journey. I will continue to pray for you and Maggie and your whole family. I look forward to hearing about your arrival home.
