Because You Asked

Lace and Button wallpapers for your computer monitors...

And Baby Clara! She is doing just fine. They are slowly starting to add a teensy drip of nutrition into her stomach through a pic line. It will be a super slow process, taking up to a week before she can take all of her nourishment through her digestive system. They are running the standard tests for a preemie, and so far she seems to be passing with flying colors.

This photo was taken in the brief moment that my Sister got to see her Clara on her way out of recovery. Since then, my Sister hasn't been stable enough to move, and Clara can't be moved either, so photos and video have been their only connection.
My Sis has to be able to sit up in a wheelchair without getting dizzy before they will take her to the NICU for a visit. I talked to her on the phone last night, and her attitude is very positive. She's a trooper. We are all praying with all our might that her body will rally soon so that her Mama's heart can be soothed by being able to be with her baby.

Here's Clara again, with her Daddy's hand as size reference.
And a bit of video that my Dad took about an hour after she was born.

Did that little squeak just kill you, or what?

Auntie Beth is on her way! Just as soon as school lets out this afternoon, I'll be heading up to look into my Sister's eyes and see that teeny little babe. I can hardly wait!

Just the news I was longing to hear this morning! Now I'll also be praying for a safe trip for Auntie Beth. :)

Clara looks so alert in that pic...it's like she's letting her mommy know that they will both be ok real soon. Enjoy your visit...I will continue to keep them all in my prayers

What great news, Beth.
Every day will see baby Clara and little bit stronger. Your sister must be desperate to hold her :-) Warm blessings to them both. What a beautiful picture of Clara sleeping sweetly next to her daddy's hand.
