Baby born at 33 weeks

We welcomed our daughter, Anna Claire, on July 7th at 3:26 pm. She weighed in at 4 lbs .6 oz. She was 16.5 inches long.
I developed severe pre-eclampsia and my condition rapidly deteriorated. Baby was born by emergency c-section. I was under a general anesthetic, so I was unable to see her for many hours.
Anna was breathing on her own, but was eventually put on a ventilator and given surfactant to help her immature lungs. She was flown to a different hospital so she could be in a higher care nursery. I was too sick to be moved, but they moved me yesterday. She is now off the ventilator and is just on the cpap. I'll be in hospital for another day or two.
