Claire Rebecca update 060313

my girl
Saturday morning 11:00 after inspecting the 5 AM CAT scan results and examining Claire in person, the neurology specialist informed us in very reassuring terms that Claire does not need brain surgery right now, and her brain damage is likely to heal since she is so young and leave no mental handicap.

This good news was delivered to us as Jen sat in a rocking chair holding her baby for only the second time in her busy first week in the NICU. Tears of joy.

Buoyed by this good news, followed by some lunch and snacks delivered to us by friends, we have returned home for a nap.

Thanks so much for your prayers. They mean a lot to us, and I am sure are making a difference.
