Here She is..Baby Emma

Alright so I have some time now to post about her arrival and how she is doing. Emma was born on Feb 11 at 11:04 am weighing in at 7 lbs 9 oz and 22 inch. She had her back repaired on Friday morning which was interesting all in its self but that's a story for another day. She did great with the surgery but I didn’t get to hold her until Sunday and Nick got to hold her on Monday. This last week went great she has been eating like a champ and has gained weight. She is weighing in at 8 lbs 3 oz and Friday is when she had her shunt surgery which went very well. I stayed over night at the hospital that night and luckily they where able to find some where for me to sleep. By Sunday she was eating almost like normal and seemed to be feeling allot better. Yesterday was her head ultra sound which I still haven’t heard the results of but I am assuming they are good. Right now she is getting her MRI which is a little scary just because they have to sedate her but I am sure it will be ok. Now tomorrow she will be released and then we go to uerodynamics test and unfortunatly our plan wont be leaving until 7:30pm and will get into Phoenix until 10:35pm which is a huge bummer but I think it will be the easiest way to go since it a non stop.

So some really positive things on Monday I went to change her diaper and cath her, well there wasn’t much out of the cath which is unusual for her. I finish her diaper realizing she had really gone in her diaper. Which was extremely exciting and has continued to go in her diaper. The physical therapist came and saw her last week and was amazed how much movement she had in her lower legs and even feet, she was also amazed how flexible she is and went over exercises to do with her to keep that. She can again today and Emma had showed even more movent then before in her feet. She said that will continue for the next couple of months.
