The Waiting Game

We are back from our trip to Boston with no distressing phone calls on the drive home. The visit was pretty uneventful and probably one of the shortest times spent in clinic. Now begins the waiting game. As the respiratory virus season approaches, we know for sure that Juliana will not be having surgery. Since she is still on oxygen her surgeon has decided against reanostomosis till at least after the winter. I already knew that plans for surgery were heading in this direction. Our next clinic visit is in two months which is the longest we will have stayed away from a hospital since Juliana's birth.

Our goals still remain the same for now, stay out of the hospital, continue to grow and avoid infection at all costs.

  1. I must say, "You Rock, MOM!" You amaze me. You are doing such a fabulous job with Juliana. What a lucky little girl. I'm praying that you have an uneventful winter.

    PS: I love all of the pictures. Juliana is such a pretty little girl.


Juliana Maria was born on July 12, 2008. She is a micro preemie born at 1lb 2oz. 11-1/2 in 23 weeks and 4 days gestational age.
