Today I am thankful for the NICU. Sadie's life hung in the balances for an entire week while the wonderful NICU staff at Phoenix Children's Hospital worked so very hard to find out what was wrong and make it better. We still keep in touch with the Neonatologist from the NICU, who cried with us when we decided to let Sadie go, and cried again with us when we learned that Sadie was getting better.
This last week I've had a good friend and a family member both with babies in the NICU... the kind of situations where special newborn intervention is saving their babies' lives. It is AMAZING what they can do for such little tiny people!
And speaking of little tiny people being kept alive in the NICU, Baby Beau's open heart surgery is tomorrow morning. He has had over a week to gain strength and bond with his parents, and he is doing wonderfully! Please keep them all in your prayers, tomorrow is a scary day for everybody.
Here are some pictures of Mama and Daddy enjoying their little boy.
