For the complete story on Clara's illness and hospital stay, check out Ryan's post about the whole ordeal on her blog. He tells it beautifully.
i am so very very happy for you :) your little treasure looks so precious :) isn't it always amazing how little babies are, when we see them on tv or in other places as being so much larger? or even seeing relatives, as babies or with babies, after they're a little older...they are so very helpless, so very innocent, fragile and deserving of our protection :)glad you're there for this little one :)good luck with everything in the future,but you've already gained something so many others would likehave you tried acupuncture for adhesions? or something out there that has green tea (egcg), lycopene and natto-k in it? there's something called systemic enzymes, similar to digestive enymes, which are supposed to help with adhesions...myself, i had to have surgery to remove mine
i think it might not be a surprise that she has trouble with her lungs? if she was premature?i think the lungs are some of the last to develop, and doctors will often give steroids to make them develop more quickly when birth is imminent and they are premature...hang in there! there is a patron saint of lungs,can't remember:)of course, so many others will watch over this little one...my very tall friend was several months premature, and she has always looked so healthy - could never imagine she was premature, and long before they have the current things to help babiesyou must be on cloud 9, even if she is sick :( because they are truly so magical
the fact that this baby is a 'biracial' baby is even better :) all abbies are so fabulous - but we change the world when we step out into something new like this - protect and choose the child that needs it the mostyou don't need to do this to feel proud, but think of all the amazing people who are 'biracial' - mariah carey, alicia keyes, etc...even the current president, if God could soften his heart to the innocent babies threated by abortion...is endometrin a suppository? i wonder if that's why your progesterone levels are low...i saw that posti use sublingual, which i think is the best...i get it compounded at a big pharmacy, and it's so easy...not the mess of the suppositories, and doesn't affect the liver / kidneys....i'm not trying to conceive at this moment, so i don't know how that affects you...the pharmacy is bellevue pharmacy in st louis...i have read so many of your posts over the last year or two, and i am so very happy that things are going well for you....even though you are still very young (my aunt who went on to have five kids, didn't have her first until a year or two older than you, after two miscarriages)...i know it's hard to be married and want to share your life with childrenGod has strengthened you, and heard you as you told Him what was important to you and your husband....I pray that God strengthens other possible parents to move ahead in boldness, and LOVE :)
His post was beautiful! I'm so happy she is doing better and continue to pray for all of you!
I nominated you for a blog, Mama! I'm sure that word is like music to your ears with the beautiful blessing your journey as yielded. Here's a link to the blogging award:http://my-infertilityjourney.blogspot.com/2010/02/things-that-make-my-day.html
I left a comment on the other blog, but basically wanted to say that we have been there with both (rsv like virus just this season-though quite as scary since he is older) and also Charlie has BAD reflux. I am happy to answer any reflux questions-I am getting pretty good at discerning reflux from ear aches, etc.
Didn't get a chance to post earlier, but I have been keeping Clara in prayer. So glad she was able to come home after a relatively short stay. I can imagine that must have been so scary and difficult to watch.
