Who's in charge?

Hello friends,

Just a quick update on Madeline. The last few days have seen some ups and downs in her. She now has a lung infection that is bordering on pneumonia. This could possibly explain the ups and downs. They have already started antibiotics and are hopeful that they will do the trick. Lungs are very important in newborns and especially important in Madeline being premie and having a heart condition. Please pray for her lungs to fight off the infection so she can get back to the business of growing.

Madeline got upset again today, and managed to pull out one of her IV’s (who’s in charge now?). Fortunately she still has plenty of IV’s in her body still. I guess Madeline wanted her left hand back. Today Madeline won’t let the nurse’s sit still, she is setting off her alarms every few minutes. I feel like this is part of her personality beginning to develop. When I came in today, she looked up and smiled at me. I’ll end with that, please keep our precious little daughter in your prayers.

Here is a little video of Madeline after her third blood transfusion, she really perks up when she gets them.

Shanker & Lisa.
