New bed

Sunday, March 22, 2009

Darbi got a new bed yesterday! Another baby was born that needed her Giraffe (the name of the bed) so they moved her to a similar isolette. The top doesn't come up but the sides fold down. Another 150 grams to go and she can be moved to a regular crib! Today we took over a quilt that my Aunt Amy made for Darbi (THANKS AMY!!!) and placed it over her isolette. The really nice thing about it is that the underside of the blanket is black and helps to keep out any extra light. The entire South side of the NICU is windows and lately the weather has been so nice and sun-shiny bright so the nurses have been keeping the blinds open. It gets so bright so this way Darbi can get some sleep and grow! We love it!


Eye appointment tomorrow is still a go and the nurses said they are anticipating the surgery to be either tomorrow night or Tuesday morning.

We went in this morning for some snuggle-time and she was l-o-v-i-n-g it! She was out cold.. and she had happy numbers! (which means she's being good and healthy...)

I remember when I certain special little angel needed Crew's bed more than he did :) Go, Darbi! Be warned that she will most likely have an unhappy transition to the open crib as she gets used to the airflow, noise, and constant light.
