Thank you all for your posts. I visited with Julia this morning. She's having a pretty good day. She'll be 28 weeks old tomorrow and "2 birth weeks old" on Monday. We take it one day at a time and pray for the day she comes home with us. She's already a strong little girl and seems to be responding well to what the docs are doing for her. I'll post as I can.

Welcome, Julia Faith! That is such a lovely name. I am sending lots of prayers, positive thoughts, and strength to you all. I hope that you are recovering well and that she is safely growing big and strong in the NICU.

I'm so sorry that you weren't able to get further along in your pregnancy... the last update sounded so positive. I guess we know that things can take a turn so fast. It is wonderful, however, that they caught the reverse flow in time and got her out safely. Her name is precious.

We're still praying, and would love to hear updates as you're able. Grow baby grow!

I am praying for your baby girl. It sounds like Julia Faith is a little fighter. I hope you are recovering and taking care of yourself during this time. I hope Julia grows by leaps and bounds and she is out of the hospital in no time. Thinking of you! Lots of hugs!! Shannon
