Brinson had to get her NG tube changed (Mommy's turn) and because of that her face was exposed for a few moments. Look at those cheekies.
"There is no place like home" (click ur heels Brinson) BTW those shoes are from a doll.
Here is another wonderful night nurse, Alison, who has taken great care of Brinson over these past 5+ months.
And who could forget Dr. Minkes (surgeon). He knows Brinson inside and out!!! He is moving on to a new job in Dallas and plans to keep up with us. Thanks Dr. Minkes for all the wonderful care you have given her.
When Meme and Mommy arrived yesterday.....Brinson was being held by Auntie Tiffani, not because she was fussy, just because she wanted some cuddle time with Brinson. Now that is amazing care. Thanks Tiffani.
Several other people stopped by yesterday to see Brinson because we are inside 1 week before going home so everyone is getting there hellos and goodbyes in. And I think they so rarely get to know a baby as great as Brinson. :>
Here is Jessica (she has been one of Brinson's Nurse practitioners). Thanks for taking such great care of our miracle.
Here is Dr. Hernandez (she has been one of Brinson's Doctors). BTW she was the doctor that "doomed us" (ie told us about all the scary stuff of dealing with a preemie). Grammy and Grandfather just happened to be visiting us in Labor/Delivery when Dr. Hernandez came by. I wish I could say it prepared us, but really nothing does.
Brinson is doing great...steadily gaining weight, sleeping mostly through the night ( I am sure that will change when we bring her home).....just doing great.
Mommy and Daddy were on different schedules yesterday so Abuelo and Daddy got to spend some quality time with Brinson. She got very comfortable in Abuelo's arms. Brinson likes to slink down in the crux of your arm...pretty funny to watch. It does not matter how far up you put, she wiggles her way down.
It was a pleasure to watch my dad being a grandfather. He talked and sang to her in spanish.
