Yesterday was a wonderful day. I was surrounded by some of the people that I love! :D
Malinda, It was so awesome to see you and the girls! Thank you for driving WAY out here to visit with us! I am looking forward to planning our lunch one Wednesday afternoon! :)
Sara... I can't even begin to express our gratitude for you and Steve. We love "yall!" You are always so thoughtful and I am SOOOOOO glad that you came to visit! I do wish that we lived closer but, God will reveal that plan soon enough. ;) we will be out to see you, the kids and your mom today.
Mom and Louie.. LOVE you guys! Thank you for everything!
Yesterday, Lily was much more alert than ever... She stayed awake a lot and I am pretty sure that she noticed her mobile on her swing. She was very intent on looking at it for about 10 minutes or so. When she was finished, she went into a little of a "meltdown mode." Too much stimulation. :)
I think that her head circumference was up alittle more yesterday, maybe 40cm. (in Dr. Dilustro's office on Thursday he measured it at 39) The site where her incision is was much flatter though. So some of the fluid has come out of there. Maybe the increase is b/c it has drained out of there and is trying to drain by the cyst. We see Dr. Dilustro again tomorrow morning. She is still eating very well, sleeping normally, more alert than ever. Still no "hydro" symptoms.
She has started to make other noises than crying like snorting (Lily-Pug..hehe) and a noise like a horse. Ken calls her a "Ninja-Pooper." LOL She has pooped on me a bunch of times. Breastmilk fed babies poo is so different than formula fed babies. It's a matter of getting and out quick.. like a pit stop! :D
One of my goals for tomorrow is to check into social security. I don't know if she will qualify for anything at this time but, it is worth checking into. She is on my Cobra policy for insurance and I have resigned from my job. With her condition it is hard to align childcare and honestly, I don't feel comfortable leaving her in someone else's care. At this point, I can only trust that God has a much bigger plan and everything is going to be fine.
