18 Weeks Old

Abby has started doing much better in the last couple of days. She was able to be weaned off the nasal cannula yesterday morning and finally is able to paw freely at her tube-free face! She has developed a new love of chomping on her fingers, and she still needs to work on not scratching up her sweet little nose and cheeks. 

She's finally happy being held again, and she's spending more and more time awake and not furious. I still wouldn't say she's happy, and she's still fussier than usual, but it's a huge step in the right direction. 

Once we can get her completely off of some of the meds she's on she'll be ready to move back to the step-down unit! After almost a month in the CICU, it will be so nice to get back to our home-base. 


  1. So happy to read this update this morning! I have been following you guys on your journey since September and am so glad that you get to hold your sweet baby again and am loving your family photo! Praying for your family every day, hope tomorrow comes with more success than today.

  2. I think the smiles tell the story! Thanks for sharing her journey with us - the ups and the downs. It's been a real gift. We will continue for God's hand to be upon her as she continues to heal and grow.

  3. So happy to see your smiling faces, and I am glad you get to hold her again! I think about you every day.

  4. So happy that you get to hold your sweet little girl again. I think of you and your family everyday and pray for Abby's continued progress.
