I was able to "kangaroo" with Morgan Kate for a little over an hour and a half today. This is something Trav and I can do every day as long as she is doing well. It was awesome! It provides me with such a feeling of comfort and contentment. She looks tiny in person, but feels so much tinier in my arms. When I am holding her she is still hooked up to all her monitors - which is a good thing. Her heart rate, oxygen and respiration all stayed the same and looked good while I was holding her. I told Trav that it was his turn, but he insisted that I kangaroo with her. He said it's important for her to get to know me now because once she gets home she belongs to him. Ha ha - we will see about that.
Tomorrow Morgan Kate is scheduled to have a brain ultrasound. Many preemies experience some type of bleeding on the brain within a few days of birth. There are various stages of bleeding and symptoms that go with each. She has not exhibited symptoms of any bleeding so we are very hopeful. However, tomorrow we will know for sure. Please keep us in your prayers.
