Thank you so much for posting your update! What great news for my crappy Monday morning :-) I'm so glad you and she are doing well, I followed you on the board during your pregnancy and am glad that Julia is doing so well, keep up the good work momma!

Update on Julia Faith

Postby kbielec » Sat Jun 02, 639883 2:44 am

It's been a long time since I have been on these boards...and for that I am sorry - but Julia has been keeping me busy.

We are finally off of all oxygen and most of our medications. We've been cleared from the heart Doc, her eye surgery appears to have been successful, we've passed hearing tests in one ear and are rescheduled for the other ear in the next few weeks.

It's hard to believe that my 1lb 3oz 26 weeker will be 1year old at the end of July.

Julia is basically right on target for a 7 month old (as if she was born on her due date of November). She's learning to sit, trying to crawl and has mastered rolling all around the house! She's eating baby food great and starting to show signs of teething. Although she's still small at 23 inches 12.6 pounds, she's doing great. We are so very lucky.

Thanks to all of you for your encouragement during my pregnancy and her hospital stay...it's nice to share a happy ending with you for a change!
