The Moment of TRUE Motherhood
Today was the best day I have had ever. After 4 long weeks of waiting I finally got to hold my little girl. It was a moment and feeling like no other. I truly felt like a mom at that moment. Kaidyn tolerated our time very well. I actually held her for 2 hours! We did what is called Kangaroo Care. It is basically holding the baby skin to skin, letting your body heat keep them warm and enabling the baby to hear your heart beat. It was absolutely wonderful. Kaidyn also came off the CPAP machine and is on what is call a High Flow Canula. So we can see her face! We can also hear her cry, which is music to my ears (for now :) ) She is doing so well her oxygen need has decreased and her sats are looking great. Pray for her continual progress and that her lungs strengthen and she continues to breathe on her own. She is such a strong little girl. I am just so proud of her. I've been smiling from ear to ear!
