Happy Valentines Day xoxo Virginia
Virginia has really "woken up" this week. While she is still a fairly content baby, she is acting much more like a newborn than ever before. At one point there was concern that she really never cried and when she did her voice was quite hoarse from her lengthy intubation. They even ordered an ENT consultation and endoscopy to investigate . Virginia has definitely found her voice now.....We think Virginia may be starting to get the hang of bottles too (**knocking on wood**). She took all of her bottles during the day yesterday and only had a few choking episodes. We are trying not to get our hopes up too high, but we are very proud of her.
We have spent Columbus Day, Election Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, Martin Luther King Day, My Birthday, The Super Bowl, and Valentines Day in the hospital, please say a prayer that the luck of the Irish will bring Virginia home before St. Patrick's Day.
