Her very first picture. Notice her size compared to the nurse's hand and you get an idea of just how small she is. Even the premie outfit she wore home was too big. ... nnaPic.jpg

I am so happy and relieved that everything went well and everyone is also doing well. I am happy that your wife is now just about clear from pre-e. I hope her BP comes down and stays down quickly. With my first pg, mine came down fast, but the second took almost a week. happy for you. Do you have any pics?

Woo Hoo! Congratulations. You and your wife have been through so much, I am glad to hear she made it here ok. My dd was also 6 lbs 7 oz. You are lucky to be able to take her home, mine had to stay in NICU for 15 days.
