August 10th 26 Days Old!!!

Today, I get a call early in the morning around 745ish am from the Doc Intern to let Me know they have added Emmie-Rose to the list for her "Shunt" Surgery today (scheduled for Friday). Since She is doing so well with her BP, and Her blood Cultures coming back Negative still, they are ready to do it. So while Chris slept awhile, Mom and I went to the Hospital early NOT knowing what time She would go for Surgery and wanting to be there before She left. We finally heard She was on for 2pm, which could be a little before or a little later. She started getting her Blood Transfusion around 130pm (She gets BT's often). Chris came up and sat with her for awhile and Mom and I sat in the waiting room chilling out for a bit. The Baby's parents next to Us came out and the Mom told Me She thought Emmie-Rose was having issues breathing. So I ran back to see what was going on, and come to find out her tube had moved and kinked in her mouth or something (also, the tube was too small for her anyways but due to her Vocal Cords being swollen, they used the smaller tube on Friday). They put just the OX up her nose (instead of the CPAP mask) and She did Excellent!! YAY!!! But because She was going to have Surgery, they had to put the Vent back on. (Chris was in there the whole time, but didnt/couldnt get Me because He knew I would be upset AGAIN and there was no room to move to come get ME anyways). But when I walked back there after finding out from the other Mom, She was good to go. She had her New Tube in (which was very simple this time), and looked VERY HAPPY!! Her hood was up on her Incubator (which is usually closed due to her still using Humidity). SO to see her fully open is Awesome!!!, Your Not looking through plastic to see her all the time. SHe is so Beautiful!! I got to talk to her for a bit before they closed the lid. As soon as She heard Mommy, She started smiling at Me, Everyone was so surprised that She was smiling!! It was Awesome!!
