I do hope she'll be fine :) :fingerscr
Before they know it that little girl will have a set of lungs on her! :) I'm sure of it and then they'll wonder where all the silence has gone :p
August 18th, 2006, 12:47 PM
Thank you every one for your more than kind wishes. It has been appreciated more than you will ever know! The wee girl is breathing on her own and seems to be a bit feisty. Perhaps I should go to the hospital and record her crying so all of our four legged boys and girls will be used to her before she actually gets here. Little do they realize that life for them has also now changed, for the better. Soon they will have more to watch then spiders and ants.

Good to hear. :thumbs up
I hope her progress continues. :fingerscr :fingerscr

Just alittle update, mama samoan's baby granddaughter came home yesterday, she's just over 5 pounds and doing well, maybe mama s. will be on alittle later today for an up-date on how the first night went:highfive: as It's been a VERY long time a baby has been around. Mom is doing well, glad to have her baby girl home at last.
October 11th, 2006, 11:30 AM
That is good news for sure. :) .
I was born very premature, and weighed only 3 pounds, got very sick and lost some weight shortly after. It was a rough couple of months, but everything was fine. So glad to hear positive news :thumbs up
October 11th, 2006, 11:36 AM
So happy to read the good news ! :thumbs up we will see pics of the little bundle of joy right?

Once again I would like to thank everyone for their kinds thoughts. The new little Princess is doing excellent. She has been welcomed home by her new furry brother and sisters. The nursery door has been replaced by a screen door so that when babys Mom is downstairs on the main floor, the cats and dog can watch her thru the screen. They dont plan on having the screen door there for long, it is just because both cats are quite a bit bigger and they dont want them to crowd her until the baby is bigger, but they also dont want them excluded from the baby totally. They all are allowed in the nursery when they are supervised. It is really cute to walk down the hall and see both cats and the dog sitting and looking in thru the screen door. New babys make so many new sounds and the heads are all cocked and trying to figure out whats up with that? And trust me they are not alone with trying to figure out all these new sounds. Anyways thanks again for all your kindness. I am gonna go and grab a wee nap.........

Glad to hear your little princess is doing so well. What is her name? The screen door is an excellent idea.....I love it.

So glad to hear everything is going well, and congratulations!
We've got the screen door on the bedroom as well. It makes her room feel very cottage-y!

Hey lil' Ella ! Welcome to the world! http://bestsmileys.com/magic/7.gif

Very sad how quick things can change with little ones, baby Ella was having some troubles yesterday, after doing some tests her blood work came back not normal so they have admitted her, not sure what is going on or how long she will have to stay, poor wee baby.
It makes me just sick/mad that some girls/ladies can pump out babies like rabbits without even caring about them and then there's girls/ladies out there trying desperately to have a baby, doing everything possible health wise and nothing.... this is just (MHO):shrug:
October 20th, 2006, 12:19 PM
Premature babies have rough times now and then. :pray: baby Ella will be feeling better soon and get back into good times. :grouphug:
October 20th, 2006, 07:01 PM
I'm so sorry to hear about little Ella. I hope it is nothing serious. :fingerscr I have a niece that went through a lot of setbacks with her preemie. I understand how you feel about the "not fair" scenario. :grouphug:
I hope everything goes well and give my best to Mama Samoan and Ella's mom. :grouphug: Fingers crossed for little Ella. :fingerscr :fingerscr
October 20th, 2006, 07:41 PM
I am so sorry,poor baby :sad: Keep hoping for the best :fingerscr :grouphug:
October 20th, 2006, 07:44 PM
