Julia turned three weeks today. So gestational age is 26 weeks. Crazy! Julia had a good day today, to make up for the last day and a half. She continues to struggle with her lungs, but has had some improvements. Her saturation levels have been very nice today. It’s still quite the balancing act of what they do for her. They try to push her independence without throwing her out into the deep end. For example giving and taking on her meds, sedatives, oxygen etc. Recreating the womb on the outside is not the easiest task in the world. So Mom’s enjoy the discomfort of pregnancy while your bodies produce the perfect growing environment for your baby. I must admit that I get a little jealous of those big pregnant bellies I see, wishing that Julia could still have that. I suppose Julia has been thrown into the fight whether she likes it or not. But fortunately she is a fighter, and the pain she feels now she will forget. Mom won’t, but she will.
Thank you all again for your prayers, love, service and support. We have really been lifted through all of this.
