"For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you when I was made
in the secret place, when I was woven together
in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my
unformed body; all the days ordained for me
were written in your book
before one of them came to be."
Psalm 139: 13-16

Happy Due Date!
On rounds this morning we discussed her discharge (YAY!) for tomorrow. She will have a car seat test later today to make sure she is able to maintain her oxygen levels while she's in the seat. Her head is only slightly bigger than a normal newborn so we are praying that she passes and we won't have to worry about a car-bed (something I didn't even know existed until all this..)
The attending ordered Joe and I to enjoy tonight with a nice dinner and some good rest, as it will likely be the last night for anything resembling restful sleep for a while- I've never been so happy about the prospect of not sleeping before:) I am so happy that we are so close to bringing her home.
Today we plan to hold her as much as possible, and "enjoy" what we hope is our last day in the NICU!
