Uncle Adam and Magdalena
Daniel (to the left behind wall), Carter, Katie, and Addie
Today Magdalena had some friends and Uncle Adam to come say hello and give her some sweet love, so I wanted to share some pictures. Today Magdalena is continuing to improve the amount of food that she digests. She has a small tube in her nose that helps for her to intake when she has trouble taking the amount of needed calories by mouth. Magdalena's sweet nurse for today, Sondra, sat and explained so much that will be happening in the upcoming days and some of the things that we might need for her arrival.
Tomorrow Noah and I will be meeting with Magdalena's doctor to learn about her home health care. On Monday night (and possibly Tuesday) Noah and I will be spending the night in the hospital to be able to care for Magdalena in a private room but having the nurses nearby. When everyone feels comfortable she will come home, which we are planning to be Wednesday, but we have learned that you just can't plan too much in this situation.
I hope to write you more tomorrow with more on Magdalena's sweet care and all that will be happening when I better understand it myself.
Please pray for both Noah and me as we learn the special care that Magdalena will need, that our minds will be at peace and that this will allow us some rest in the small amount of time that we will need, to remain relying on him, and that God will give us the patience, strength, and plenty of hydration (for all the tears that will be shed by me when trying to learn and thinking of how I am so inadequate for this special little baby's care). -Julie
