1st Family Picture

Sunday, September 7, 2008
After 9 days of not being able to hold my precious angel, our night nurse Ramona asked me if I wanted to hold peanut. WHAT - I didn't even know I was able to hold her while she was intibated. She told me that as long as she didn't have any d-sats and her blood pressure was within range I would be able to hold her after her bath and weigh in. I was ecstatic!!! It felt like it had been forever.

She did great during her bath and weigh in - so I was in! I was really nervous because I didn't want to cause any pain to her by moving her vent incorrectly. Ramona placed Kennedy in my arms. It was different then any other time I held her because she still had lines and IV's going all over the place. Pretty much the way she was set in my arms was the way I had to hold her. I was able to hold her for about twenty minutes and Ramona took our first family picture.
