You've Come a Long Way Baby!

Saturday, May 23, 2009 was Elle's 2 month birthday. I was looking through pictures and realized just how far our little princess has come. She is truly a miracle baby and we are so blessed. Some milestones (good and bad) in Elle's first 2 months: * Born March 23, 2009 at 7:34pm * Stopped breathing around 10:00pm on March 23, 2009 and had to be intubated * Stopped breathing on Thursday, March 26, 2009 after being extubated * Stopped breathing on Wednesday, April 1, 2009 after having her PICC inserted (this was also the episode where the doctors realized Elle's nose was completely blocked) * Tuesday, April 7, 2000 - had nose surgery to create holes in her nose so she could breathe and had tubes inserted into her nose to keep the holes open * Sunday, April 12, 2009 - Elle's original due date and her first Easter * Monday, April 13, 2009 - had her first heart surgery to insert a BT Shunt into her heart to help the oxygen rich blood flow better to her body * Thursday, April 23, 200 - Elle's 1 month birthday!
