May 11

Maryn did well today. She's up to 2lbs 5oz. Roughly 14 1/2 inches long. They didn't weigh her yet tonight, but still. She did need a little blood earlier today, as her hematocrit numbers were on the low side, but she's a trooper. I can tell that she HATES having that IV in her hand.

On a brighter note, we did get to hold her again today. Yup, that's right. I said WE. David went up to the hospital after we ran some errands to my work and held her for about 45 minutes. It was his turn, and I'm trying to be fair about it. I was taking the late shift today. But once I got there, Maryn's nurse JoAnn asked if I wanted to hold her too. DUH!!! She said she had been doing so well that we both could take a turn today. Over 90 minutes later, my Princess went back to sleep quickly in her bed. All snuggled up in her little outfit from our friends Amber, Jake and baby Marley.


  1. Tasha,
    So glad you started a blog. My blog started out almost 4 years ago just as a way to share pix of the girls with family and friends, I never thought it would be used for updating people about my preemie. My dad told me I needed to journal while JW was in the NICU. I never got around to it, and looking back my blog kind of acted as a journal anyway. It's probably the closest thing to a baby book any of my kids will get!

    I never posted about what landed me in the hospital with JW. By the time I felt like blogging I figured anyone who currently read my blog already knew what had happened anyway. So don't feel too pressured to write it all out, unless you feel it'll help you. Who knows, maybe for the one year anniversary of my hospitalization (wow, that's a long word) I'll feel like writing about it. We'll see....

    Glad Maryn is doing well and that you and David both got some snuggle time today.


  2. Thank you for blogging about Maryn. It is hard to hear about your difficult time but it is also comforting (in a way) to be able to at least know what's going on with the family. Rachel, Joanie and I all love you and hope the best for your family.
