There is some improvement in her pulmonary interstitial emphysema although it is not much. There is not much more they can do for her lungs at this point. We just have to hope that she has enough fight in her to get better on her own. So for right now and for a while it is just wait and see. Everyday, every hour, every minute that she is alive just brings more hope.
Juliana opened her eyes for the first time early Saturday morning. Unfortunately, I was not there but she did open her eyes for us today. I was also able to hold her for a few minutes for the first time in her life. I have been waiting for this moment since the day I found out I was pregnant. Today was one of our better days in the NICU and I am sure there will be more to come. We have a long way to go still but we are taking preemie steps in the right directions. Please keep her in your prayers.
