Some Visitors

It is getting very hard to not have visitors.  We are able to make some exceptions, as long as people are well and are willing to scrub and make sure they are careful when around Micah.  Her GrandDad and Meemee finally were able to come and visit her!  They have not seen her since she was in the NICU in September.  She has grown so much since then.  We had a special little Christmas celebration with them.  Micah was wearing her new dress she got from Grandma Barb!  She looked so cute that day.  We got many neat gifts, but the best one was Micah's shirt from Grandpa!  We were able to keep it clean enough for his visit and she had fun wearing it! 

On Dec 23 Micah got sick.  I had been sick for a couple days before and was so worried she was going to get it and sure enough, she did.  The next week was one of the hardest ones I have ever had.  She was not eating, barely sleeping, coughing, fever and a runny nose.  She had been off of her oxygen for 5 days before that and had to go back on.  I was getting little to no sleep and felt so sick myself.  I don't know how we pulled through, but we did and we are finally on the mend.  We had many people praying for us to get better and it was so comforting to me. 

We did have to bring her into the doctors.  She weighed 10 lbs 12 oz that day!  I was so happy!  She is definitely growing.  We are still having to pray for a lot of patience when feeding.  She has been doing better, but I am having to add fortifier to almost ever bottle she has now to maintain her weight.  Keep praying for our precious baby and for this new year to be a new season for us with lots of rejoicing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
