Holding Katie

Yesterday I got to hold Katie in the NICU. Katie Rose is looking more like a newborn baby. Katie is looking like herself. Katie is going strong and closing in on three pounds fast.

In the NICU, they’ve turned off the environmental settings in Katie’s isolette (they are keeping it warm, but they’ve turned the humidity off). This means that she is wearing clothes now, and very happy when all swaddled up, as you can see in this photo that Phyllis took of Katie on my chest:

Wrapped up like this, Katie is the sweetest bundle.

While I was holding Katie, a nurse who had helped resuscitate Katie on the day she was born, and who hadn’t seen her since then, came over to talk with us. She told us how happy she was to see Katie alive and well, and what a miracle it was. All babies are miracles, of course, but Katie seems more of one than most!
