Julia Faith is 2 pounds 5 ounces and doing pretty well. We've had heart surgery, we've had a terrible life threatening infection, we've had ups we've had downs and lil missy just keeps plugging along. She's amazing, and my love for her is more than I can describe. I spend my days in the NICU, learning how to bath her, care for her, about all of her monitors and then my evenings back there with my husband. One day at a time, I treasure them...pictures soon I promise!

So, so, so glad to hear that little Julie is chugging along through all the trials and gaining weight. Strength to you both!

Hello all - had a quick minute to make a very important update...Ms Julia Faith has shown me her strength and strong will to live again - yesterday a miracle happened, at least for my husband and I...the ventilator was removed and Julia is on a cpap for minimal support...she's breathing all on her own. I am so overwhelmed with Joy.

That is wonderful news. I think about you family often and send prayers your way. Miss Julia sounds like she's little fighter.
