The best medicine

I've had my hands full up until now, hence the late post. I got to hold Alex this morning which made my day. Jimmy and I both miss holding her so much and we are so excited she is at a point where we can start doing this again. She was awake for a good 45 minutes and opening her eyes (as much as she could anyway) . Her face is so puffy lately. Her eyes were almost swollen shut yesterday but they are getting better.

She had a good night with nurse John and is doing well today. They started her feeds again, via the tube in her nose and so far so good. Things are looking up and we are in good spirits. We love sharing good news with everyone and are so glad we have so many to celebrate with :)

I wanted to add this photo, cuz it's hilarous. -Jimmy
