2 Months

That is how long it has been since I have been home :( I'd be lying if I said that I wasn't missing everything there, but really, it is so worth it. It is such a short period in the grand picture and for the very best of reasons.
Also, tomorrow Elise will be 4 weeks old! It has gone so fast, feels like just yesterday I was walking into the hospital unaware that I was in active labor :P I keep wishing and hoping that today will be the day that they tell us to get ready to go home, and even though it hasn't happened yet I do still have hope that it will happen soon.
Only one hurdle left to break, and that is for Elise to be able to take all of her feedings either by breast or bottle for 48-72 hrs without needing the feeding tube. She has been improving for sure, she even went a full 24hrs with only one gavage feeding. The next 24hrs were pretty sleepy, but then today has been better. A bit of a roller coaster, but seeing improvement overall despite the down days is fantastic. She is also gaining weight steadily (now up to 4lbs 8oz), another awesome blessing.

Soon Keira will meet her sister and things will be back to normal chaos :) I can't wait :)

She is just sooo tiny and precious! I'm so glad things are going so well!

I don't think you know me, but I was friends with Josh in college. My husband and I had a son last May...he was 2 months premature. I guess I just feel such a connection to other moms who are going through the same thing. So when I happened to see your facebook picture (we have some mutual friends) I wanted to get in contact with you. I apologize if you find this strange...I just wanted to let you know that I know what you're going through and I would love to talk sometime. You are all in my prayers...please let me know if there's anything I can do!
