Happy Mother's day

Today is nine weeks or 63 days in the hospital for Emilia. Still waiting for her numbers to make some progress but they haven't gotten worse so we continue to hold steady.

The eye doctors, including the cornea specialist, came by yesterday and said the amniotic membrane has dissolved but they will leave the ring in place in her eye b/c it can help prevent the growth of scar tissue. He was very pleased with the healing so far but her vision will continue to be blurry because of the ointments and drops she gets every two hours throughout the day as well as the swelling she has.

We don't have any plans for Mother's day with our crazy schedule but will celebrate at a future date when Emilia can join us. Happy Mother's day to our moms, Jill and Sue, who are at the hospital several days every week to take care of Emilia so we can both go to work and take care of Max. We would not be able to endure this schedule without them! xoxo Natalie and Mitchell

I don't know Jill and Sue but want to thank them as well and wish them Happy Mother's I am fortunate to work with Natalie and will go on record to say how much I appreciate her dedication to her job while being so involved with Emilia's care. I am learning personally from her. Emilia, I feel as though we know each other. Stay strong as you are an inspiration to us all.
