Ella opened her eyes

I went down late last eve, after our hardest day thus far to say good night to the girls, and Ella was squirming all over the place. After a few minutes she opened her eyes! I about melted and struggled to get the camera out to capture the moment.

Today, they plan to take Ella off Cpap, Ava off the lights, and we are really hoping to get to Kangaroo w/ them...

  2. Hello, you all don't know me, but I am good friends with Amanda Uher. I have my own preemie, Parker. He was born 11 weeks early, weighing 2lbs 3 ozs and was 14.5 inches long.

    When Amanda told us your story, I just began praying, because I have been there and it isn't easy. I pray for you all daily and look forward to following the story through your blog.

    If you ever need to talk to someone who understands, please don't hesitate to contact me. I am willing to listen!

    Your girls are beautiful and sound like they are doing well. That's great great news!

    Feel free to swing by my blog and my son's old update blog:

    Hang in there!
