Teh Cutenss Continues~ Baby Pix!

Letter from the Ryans

Rhonda is taking off like a weed.

The Good Life~

The Good Life~

She weighs 4lbs 8oz AND she is up to taking 3 40-50ml (30ml in an oz) a day AND her nose tubes have been removed and she is breathing completely on her own.

Probably for a few days of that (and I think they’re running short) she will move from the isolate to an open crib.  I am going twice a day now to give bottles and the nurses give her the rest.

Unfortunately I cannot make it to the hospital more than twice a day.  Oh she has to have at least 5 days of 8 full feedings before coming home.  I believe thats at whatever ml she’s taking at that time, no specific amount.

The Look of Love

The Look of Love

Oh my goodness and the nurses, ALL of them and there’s 10-20 different ones, all make over her and her improvements.  They even fight over the schedule to be assigned her.  Either they give the extra effort and compliments to every family or she really is something special to them in the NICU.  I honestly believe it’s the latter.  Come on, all of them???

I don’t know how but things are coming together so well at the hospital and at home, that we may just be all ready for her to come home.  (Double thanks to Dena!)  Ryan will be staying home 5 work days when she comes home.  He has already taken days when I was in the hospital delivering.

I am feeling better as Rhonda starts her downhill descent to coming home and as things are getting more ready at home.

Enjoy the pics and Love ya all!

    Oh Sandra! She is beautiful and so is your daughter! I am so happy to hear that the tubes are out of her nose! (I so hate those things so I can only imagine how Rhonda feels!) I know you have to be on cloud 9 and dancing on air as the days come closer to your time to be with your granddaughter. And your daughter too, of course! LOL They truly are both beauties and I think Rhonda looks like Mommy!
