It's good to be chomping at the bit again.
J has steadily and remarkably improved. She's starting to really resemble her old self. I know it means a lot to her. I'm proud of her and her desire to be a caring, watchful mother. It's mostly a waiting game now.
Gracie needs to continue to improve. (she is 4 lbs now and should be moved to a big-girl crib soon) 3 things must take place for her to graduate from the NICU: 1) She must be able to maintain her own body temperature. 2) She must be able to breathe on her own. (she's been doing this for a while now) 3) She must be able to have 2 days of consistent feeding.
I have no doubts she will be home sometime in September. She's a tough little girl.
