Introducing Bailey Ellen Whitehead





Our wake up call this morning was Bailey's doctor, informing us that she was off the oxygen and all lines had been removed. He told us that we could hold her today and we were thrilled. She is eating from a bottle again, and eating quite alot at about an ounce every 3 hours. She got a bath today and all she has hooked up to her is an IV for fluids. That will come out when she starts gaining weight from eating. We don't know this for sure but we are thinking maybe Wednesday we'll get to come home.

Bailey's doctor was in the NICU this morning when we got there. Normally he is gone by the time visting hours start at 10:00 a.m. Anyway, he told us he's been doing this a long time and this baby gave him a few more grey hairs. So everyday we are more and more thankful for her progress and that she was able to stay in Meridian and not have to go to UAB or Children's.
