This video was taken on the evening of 8/10/2010. We got to hold her in our arms again and we love to talk to Whitney. She is very responsive to both her mommy and daddy. The ending might be a little nostalgic for some of you veteran parents out there. For us it's all new.
As far as an update on her condition: She is still doing very good. For the most part she is digesting her feedings well except for an occasional throw-up here and there (hint: see video). They are still slowly weaning her off the ventilator.
Whitney has been living in a crib now since Aug 6th, and one of the nurses found a musical toy that now sits in Whitney's crib. They also made a little tent for Whitney so that she wasn't bothered too much when she's trying to sleep.
Check out Whitney's crib!
