Ellie had a good day and we are quite excited (and anxious) to see how she does on her low flow trial tomorrow. If she can manage it, it is a huge step forward to coming home sooner rather than later. I am trying to find a balance between positive thinking, prayerful hope and preparing myself to be patient if she needs more time.
Today I read Ellie the story that we have read her since she was born. It struck me, that many times in the NICU I would read it to her and wonder if she would ever be able to listen and be involved. Now I am battling to get through a page without her grabbing the book and trying her best to be involved as she rips it out of my hands!
