Update from Daddy...

Not much time lately to post new details. Maddie might get to go home tomorrow (Sunday). She got to put on some clothes yesterday and try out a blanket to help with her bilirubin...so that let us hold her more. However, her bilirubin number went up afterwards so she's back under the light for today. She really misses being held.

We are still in our original room. This hospital has been great about allowing us to stay here (as long as they don't need the room for another mom) until Maddie is out of NICU. That has been a big help for us. If Maddie's bilirubin number goes down tomorrow, there's a great chance that we can take her home tomorrow! She just has a lot of bruising and her body is not quite ready yet to take care of it on its own.

She's the most gorgeous baby we've ever seen and we think she's super awesome!!!

Here are some pictures.

  4. She is beautiful! Love seeing the pictures and getting the updates. Maddie looks better and prettier every day. Praying that you will all be at home as a family as soon as possible. Know that it has helped to have Pops, CiCi, and Jason there. So proud of you and Jenn and the way you are embracing parenthood. Love to all, Harriet
