If you are wondering where I have disappeared to these last few weeks this is what has been consuming my days and nights.
Two weeks ago my daughter started having complications with her pregnancy and was ordered to hospitalized bed rest for 6 weeks until such time they would induce her and deliver Mya 6 weeks early. Well being her Nana's impatient little grandaughter she wasn't having anything to do with that plan. Mya decided yesterday at 12:28pm she was making her grand entrance into this world, weighing in at 2.8 pounds. She is quite tiny but healthy and she was breathing on her own. They now have her hooked up to oxygen and all kinds of other tubes to help her along, but the reports at this point are all good. She is a fighter just like her Mommy.
Let me introduce you to my first Grandaughter,
Isn't she beautiful? Of course she will be much cuter once they take off all that hospital bling.
Right now that is what is making her stronger.
I did get to see her first hand and tell her I loved her. I now have to wait until she is full term to see her again. Only Mommy and Daddy are allowed in the ward. I know that is what is best for baby right now but it is going to be pure torture.
Mya will spend the next 3 months in the NeoNatal Ward at a truly amazing hospital with the best of care, until she is strong enough to go home with Mommy and Daddy.
Thank you to all for your prayers and blessings. Could I please ask you to continue to pray for our sweet little one that she becomes stronger with each day. She truly is a gift from God.
Hugs to all,
