Almost 4 weeks...

Such a cutie, even when sleeping!!

First off I can't believe it has taken me so long to update this and I apologize. I have been busy taking Gabi to the doctor and still adjusting to this new lifestyle. I must say though I love my life, my daughter has given me a whole new meaning for waking up every morning. Not to mention Jason has been home for the last week...looking for a new job. It came as a bit of a surprise, but it definitely is what is best for us. Gabi and I are so excited to have Daddy home every night.
Yesterday we had an appointment with the cardiologist and things could be better. Gabi's heart sounds good, but there is some concern because she has not gained any weight. She has maintained her weight since week 1, but there has been no gain. The reason we think is because she is using all her energy to breathe and control her oxygen levels there is nothing left for her to grow. So she is on a very strict high calorie diet and if she does not gain weight by Monday, she will be hospitalized so the expert can take a close look as to what is going on. Hopefully our little angel will pull through and pack on some weight. Of course we don't want her to end up in the hospital, but we also are preparing a bit for just never know. She is such a fighter! She ate fairly well today but she spit up more than normal, so we are gonna see how tomorrow goes before calling the doctor. That is one thing I am not afraid or think it is silly to do, I don't call like a crazy psycho mom, but if I am concerned I will call. Hey this is my first and she also has more needs so I'd rather be safe than sorry.

Today Jason picked up Gracie for a long weekend, Parent Teacher conferences. Hers was last night the teacher said they are putting her in some accelerated classes. We are so proud of her! Sometimes she likes for us to think she can't do things, but getting reports like that we know she just wants Daddy to do things for more of that...Yeah right, she'll always be Daddy's Girl and he will always do things for her :)
Tonight before Gracie actually fell asleep Daddy tucked her in and said he 'd come in a few mintues to check on her, bofore he could she came out. She said she couldn't sleep cause she was so excited to see him! It was so cute and so sweet...I could tell it melted his heart. So he held her a little bit and she fell asleep in his arms on the couch. It's moments like this that I look forward to with Gabi, but to see it with Gracie and Jason is so special too!
