Checking in...

It's been a busy Summer so far.. Grace is back in school for a month.
She goes Monday through Thursdays, 8:30-11:30 & is doing GREAT!
(There have been NO calls that she is 'rubbing' her belly.., hopefully it stays that way).
I think it's been 6 weeks post surgery & the whole May ordeal in the hospital..
we go back to surgeon tomorrow to check in.  Her skin looks good around the gtube
and she is gaining weight steadily.   She is up to about 30 lbs!!
(she was 24 lbs when she went in to the hospital in May)
She's still 'tasting' things...she should be starting a new feeding therapy
clinic in Fall River in a few weeks.  She's being a little definat these days, certainly
giving us a run for our $$ :)  but overall she is doing GREAT & is
HEALTHY & that's really what's important!!
A friend & fellow "Micro" Preemie mom wrote this wonderful story about
her preemie, Scarlett.. if you get a chance to read it.. please pick it up!
She is my hero.. I started to read it & am trying to find time nightly to continue..
The 'preemie mom' group that I've been involved in since 2011 is a wonderful group
of women with babies that were all born early.  It's been a wonderful group to really watch our
miracles grow up...and this weekend will be the first time that I will attend
the Northeast Get together with some of these women..
Grace & I will be traveling with a dear local preemie mom friend as we head
to the Poconos to meet these women & their children.. I will be sure to bring my camera!

A recent picture of our family..

She's getting there!! 
Thanks for keeping up!
