The newest member of our seriously dysfunctional family is well and now home experiencing her 8th day of life in this parenthesis of eternity, after spending the first 6-1/2 days in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).
Delivered caesarian three weeks early, she was kept in NICU because she’d gotten stuck, inhaled fluids, needed to be observed until her lungs cleared out and was taught how to eat and breathe because she was "chugging".
I’ll get to see, hold, welcome and caution Princess to not get caught up in the hype this world throws at you, in person when I drive to Long Beach Christmas Day.
|8 Days old
And so, life goes on.
Now, about that pigment or, more appropriately, lack thereof .......
