Happy Birthday - 1 week old!

Happy Birthday Anna Claire!

She is doing wonderfully and at the last check-in her bilirubin is down (YEAH!) which means she will be able to come out from under the lights soon. We were given the news that she has moved to the "step down program" which essentially means they are preparing us to bring her home soon. She could still be there for another week but she is progressing well and is still working on those poopies!

Once we know when she will be coming home, we will have the chance to spend the night with her in a room off of the NICU. This gives the parents the opportunity to "room in" with the baby and still have the nurses there if there are any questions or needs that might arise.

We love her so much! So does Aunt Christy!!!!
Thank you for continuing to pray, we are so blessed to have friends and family like you who care!
Sarah, Mike and Anna Claire

Oh Sarah...praise the Lord. We continue to pray that everything progresses quickly, so you can bring her home. I know I've said this over and over...but she is SO cute! I know it will still be quite some time before I meet her, but I sure am looking forward to it. Plus, I'd love to just visit with you! :)

As always, you're in our prayers,

She is a beautiful baby. Her eyes seem to say, "Hurry and take me home!" It won't be long and that is so good to hear.

Is Christy still here? Now I'm really bummed I didn't come by the hospital today. I was at Dr. Morgan's office and was going to hop over, but didn't want to intrude....

Anyway, yea for great news at one-week birthdays! I can't wait til you're all home!
