NICU - Thursday

A meets Grandma for the first time.

A taking a baby nap.
All good news to report today. They discontinued A's antibiotics and we will likely see the last of the IVs removed this evening. We worked on nursing today (a lot more work to do yet!), and the docs think we will be going home tomorrow or Saturday. Yeah! It's almost time for A's second homecoming.
