Riding The Wave

I think we’re slowly learning that the NICU’s two steps forward, one step back mantra applies to a parent’s emotional state as well as the physical well-being of the child. On the heels of what was an unfortunate string of down days, today was definitely another victory for us. Highlights of the day include:

Nyana's PICC line
Yes, it just looks like an average piece of string, but it’s her PICC line, an intravenous catheter that ran from her wrist to her heart. It was removed today.

Nyana's first bath
Nyana had her first bath today. She wasn’t at all sure what to think.

Getting dressed
Don helps Nyana get comfortable in her first-ever outfit.

    Don & Karen. You are so fortunate to have such a beautiful little girl. Great work!

    Nyana’s journey is incredible. Thanks for sharing! There are no words to describe what you two must be going through. As a mother I can relate to the bond you have for your babe. Nyana is a beautiful angel with an amazing drive to succeed. One day when she graduates from University (with honors) you will look back at this experience and remember her drive for success.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you two. I look forward to reading more stories about “Nyanaland” 🙂

    Wow, she is SO beautiful…..I can’t even believe how tiny she looks……and it’s weird that something that size is growing inside of me as we speak (and no, that’s not me bragging).

    I wish your family all the best,

    – Olivia
