This picture was taken at about 4am local time, my dad came down from Hawaii to see his first grandchild before she underwent her CDH repair surgery.
A donated eye mask we received. Best idea ever!
Last picture of Whitney before she went in for CDH repair surgery.

Guardian bears making sure that nobody messes with our baby while she recovers from surgery.
Aloha paper get-well lei from our family back in Hawaii!
Each flower on the paper lei had a personized message just for Whitney!
We would have put the lei on Whitney, but I think she likes her soft bedding better for now.
Whitney has a new donated hand-sewn magenta colored blanket. She loves to poke her toes through the blanket. When changing Whitney's bed sheets, they accidently threw her eye mask in the laundry and it is lost... The nurse felt so bad and she made a make-shift eye mask for Whitney.

Whitney recovering well from her surgery and all her vitals are looking good.
I love it when she looks at me!

Some days Whitney looks more swelled up than other.
Alicia and I love to video record Whitney whenever there is enough lighting in the room.

Meet eye-mask #3. You guessed it, they accidently threw away the make shift eye mask again and so the nurse made another one. Wow, she really looks like she's sleeping!
Having fun in the NICU.
Whitney looks so cute! As always.
Yeah...I don't look as cute doing it compared to Whitney.

Whitney can't turn her head on her own, but moves her eyes just fine.
Whitney is actually yawning in this picture. Her upset face looks very different than her yawning face.
Alicia's mom decided to make a new eye mask that looks pretty. So meet eye mask #4.

Whitney awake and doing so well.

Here is a better shot of Whitney yawning.
