7/26/2011 229 Days Old

July 26th, 2011

On the 229th day in the life of the most beautiful girl in the history of the world the morning began peacefully. Erin had to work today, and Grandma Patti came by to help out withMaya. Early this morning Maya woke up. She was awake and happy. It was great to see her eyes open and taking in her world again. She has been doing good since last night.

Last night we hooked her up to her monitor to check her sat and heart rate and she was at 92% and 125 BPM. It was the best reading we have seen in many weeks. She was sleeping really well at the time. We hoped that she would stay there all night and catch up on her rest, but at 12:00 she woke up. She was really upset and it is not clear wether her sat was low because of her crying or her crying led to a low sat. After 30 – 45 minutes she calmed down and went back to sleep. She continued her swings through the day. She was really well most of the day, but would have bad swings. She had two today.

This evening Grandpa Bob and Grandma Chris came by to eat dinner with us. Maya got some good grandma time. Maya is in Erin’s arms now and we are trying to get her to lay in her bed with out crying. As usual Maya is running the show around here, and she will go to bed when she decides to and not a second before.
