Machel and I went to a beautiful Christmas Eve service at St. Paul's. We were overcome with emotion. Joy, peacefulness, sadness, fear and REJOICE!! REJOICE!! Our Lord and Savior was born on this day to bring peace and love to this Earth. May he grant you all peace and love!! Mommy and Daddy then hurried up to the NICU to wish our little, joyous angel a Merry Christmas. I snapped a photo of Mommy and Baby Bella (with KoKo!!) Then Laura came by and wished us a Merry Christmas and took a picture of the entire Delange family celebrating Bella's 1st Christmas together!
An update on Bella....her O2 oscillator settings remain low, 25-30%. Her heart rate is down to the low 160s, but her blood pressure is now high. She seems to be doing well, but is still quite puffy. When Machel and I showed up to her bedside to wish her a Merry Christmas we both spoke to her and she immediately moved her arms and kicked her feet. MOM and I were overcome with joy!! She opened her eyes briefly too, we showered her with loving words and then returned to our new bedroom the last two nights, the NICU couch. Bella needs her sleep!! We appreciate the prayers and love very much!! GOD BLESS US, EVERYONE!!
