This little girl with a big fight has amazed me yet again. She is doing much better than she was on Monday night when she was constantly desat-ing and require 100% oxygen most of the time. Since the surgery Juliana has had improved lung function. While only a small improvement any improvement is enough to celebrate over. She is being weaned off her blood pressure medication slowly with the hopes of actually feeding her. Tomorrow she will get an ultrasound of her belly. If all is well she will begin small feeds every four hours of about 1ml of milk down a feeding tube.

Today another one of her favorite nurses dressed her up. Although her incubator is climate controlled and she really doesn't need clothing, it's nice to see her in her clothes looking so pretty in pink. Especially since little Omar was able to see to her in person for the first time today. This outfit she is wearing was made especially for her by me. We are so excited to see her do well. The nurses are calling her a superstar. With all of the issues she has been through and is continuing to get over she truly is a superstar. We still have a long way to go. Please keep up the prayers.
