She's awake. She's awake!! We took a walk down to see Ellah last night and she was just lying there eyes open looking at the world. When we walked in she fixed her eyes on us, like she knew who we were. We got to hold her and do this kangaroo care thingy where we hold her skin to skin. It was fantastic!

She's doing really well. They've turned down the air flow to her lungs from 3 liters to 1.5 in the few days she's been here. She's digesting pretty much all of the milk she's getting, and she's eating only mommy's milk now. She's just doing great. Michelle's able to get up and move more like a granny of caffiene as oppossed to a sleepy one. She can get up and down by herself now, and i don't have to help her go to the bathroom anymore. We're getting ready to get out of here on sunday and move over to the hickle house. It's a part of the hospital, more like a hotel, where we can stay to keep close to Ellah. So we'll see how that ship sails when it gets here.

Other then that we're doing just dandy. Almost getting sick of the Hospital life though, but we'll make it through.
