After all that work, she got pooped and feel back asleep. Which is pretty much normal for this time of the morning.

A little grouchy, but who wouldn't be??

Hello all, Mommy here. Daddy is rocking Brinson as I type this. I wanted to give an update, however I don't have any pics to post just yet.

Brinson is doing pretty well. They are keeping her on the nasal cannula for the time being but pulmonary doesn't expect her to go home with it. She is getting Morphine for pain, and today she was able to go 5-6 hours between doses. Last night she was pretty restless. I am hoping that tonite she will sleep better. She was waking up today, opening her eyes, noticing Mommy and Daddy, and then oh boy...she'd move and then the crying would start. Tonight she is better. She even got a little sponge bath.

Brinson missed a visit from some of her special friends at Woman's hospital yesterday. The transport team had to bring a baby over here to Texas Children's and stopped by our room but we were still in the PACU. We missed seeing Taji, Beverly and Jessica. Hope to see you guys again. :(

Today, she had some friends who were in the area for doctor appts stop in for a quick visit. The Baldwins were here in the morning and it was so funny to see Zachary and Brinson just staring at each other. Then The Hardy's swung by after their appt. Was great to see them! This afternoon Mike and Meme came to hang out.

We will try and get some pics posted tomorrow. Brin isnt in the best mood for pics so maybe she'll be feeling better. Oh, and no poop yet...so ya'll know what time it is!!!!!
Pray!!!!!!!

Surgery went fine

Brinson is in recovery room right now. She is off the vent and on nasal cannula (supplemental O2). She may have to go to a step down ICU if she does not come of the O2 right away, but it is too early to tell if that will be the case.

I just came out so Meme could see and Mommy is holding here right now.

We will know if the surgery was successful over the next few days.

Sleepy before surgery






















We thought the surgery was going to be early, but after waiting 2 hours while antibiotics go in THE BRINSON is in now in surgery.

They expect the surgery to take about 1 1/2 hours.

Big girl!!!!

Last night they weighed her and she is now weighs 11lbs 3.04oz.

So since leaving the NICU she has gained over 3lbs in 2 1/2 months.

Morning of...

Sleeping Brinson


Awake Brinson (Mommy still asleep)


Is that a little grin? Morning everyone!!!


We checked in around 6pm last night and Lisa had the first shift. I took over early this morning. It is a strange place so of course Brinson was not sleeping very well. It might also have to do with the fact they were pumping clear stuff through her at a very fast rate (like 60-80mls per hour) Her food currently goes in at 25mls per hour.

Today is the day of the surgery. They may move the surgery up, I understand there is a cancellation. So either at mid day or around 930am.

We are anxious to see Brinson all back together and that means Mommy and Daddy will have to change a real diaper.
