Prayers are answered

THANK YOU everyone who has been praying for Brooklyn... they have been answered. Her blood pressure was stabilized and she is off most all of her drugs treating that. Today has been a great day for her. Her ventilation continues to do well, little changes here and there but doing well. They started feeding her today!!!!! She handled her first few feedings well and will hopefully continue to do well. This may change as her gut is still pretty immature to handle is but at least for today we are estactic! She has a PIC line in now... so it will be easier for her to recieve drugs and nurtrients. I just can't tell you how great she looks compared to Tuesday. We'll take new pictures soon but since you may not notice changes they will not be posted daily. I was discharged from the hospital today and it feels so good to be home with my daughter and family. Isabel is much happier and better behaved. My mom came in this morning so she is here to take care of me. I'm looking forward to resting and getting Brooklyn's room ready, sewing stuff, cleaning, and of course being cooked for! However I've decided that I will really miss the craft-o-matic adjustable bed that the hospital bed had... rolling over off the couch or bed isn't as much fun!
Thanks again everyone!

I haven't been checking your blog for just over a week, and I check in to find all of this. My thoughts and prayers will be with dear Brooklyn. Tell Izzy and Mike hi.
