Hello ladies, I just wanted to update you girls on Harper! She's doing great! We are still in the NICU, today is our 107th day! It has been a LONG road and very stressful. Harper actually get VERY sick at about 2 weeks old, and had to be airlifted to University of Chicago Hospital. We almost lost her, and it was so overwhelming.
But everyday that she was there, she got better and better. We were able to hold her for the first time when she was 3 weeks old, I had my first Mother's Day, DH had his first Father's Day, and things have been great. She is currently 5 pounds 7 ounces, almost 18 inches long! She's finally in newborn clothes and nb diapers! She is taking all of her bottle feeds, gaining weight, and moving right along.
Her lungs are still pretty unhealthy, but the bigger she gets the better her lungs get so it will just take time to grow out of. She will probably come home on Oxygen, and we are looking at another 3-4 weeks until discharge, but we are so proud of her. She has come such a long way from a little 1 pound baby fighting for her life...
I think of all of you often and hope that you get your little miracles soon. Xo
