I'm so glad to hear another good update! I cannot believe how tiny she is. Even after all this time. So, after my friend's experience, I'm curious to know if they have been looking at her brain for bleeding?
Not to hijack, but today is the service for Micah Faith. One of my friends and I will be going.
Kayla- She's been scanned twice for brain bleeds. She does have a grade 1 bleed, but they are not at all concerned about that and really consider it normal for a micropreemie. So they don't have plans to rescan her until 34 or 36 weeks.
I hope the memorial for Micah went well today and that her parents and family are holding up okay and have a lot of support.
Kayla - If you feel like talking about it, how was Micah's service?
ETA: They changed two lines in the song. Instead of saying "And though she'll grow and someday leave, Maybe raise a family", it went ""And now she has grown her wings, she watches over her family".
Wow, Kayla. What an emotional service. Sounds like it was beautiful though.
Kayla- I heard that song yesterday and it broke my heart for your friend. Parents just should not have to experience the loss of a child.
Not too much new to report from my end. The baby is still on a vent and they are still hoping any day now it can come off. but the nurses said they feel like she has turned a corner. She doesn't scare them like she use to and they have actually talked about things that will happen once she goes home. Before they wouldn't even entertain that thought, just incase it never happened. So that is good. Mother's Day was a really difficult day for her Mom. I just wish I had the right words to say to her.
Both of these families continue to be in my thoughts and prayers.
Amber--Sometimes all someone needs is an ear and a shoulder. No words are really necessary. It is hard though because our tendency is to want to provide something in response. Most people are just grateful for that person that let them talk, cry, scream, or whatever instead of offering kind words.
