NICU Day 71

I had a good visit with Baby Girl today.  She took two bottles and breastfed twice.  It is all very exhausting, but I think she's building her endurance. It was really hard to leave her tonight.  The NICU is very full and the nurses are all a bit stretched thin.

I heard the nurses talking about calling Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep and I saw lots of people crying :(  I don't know who lost a baby, but someone did and it is very sad.  It was hard thinking about that possibility and the reality that that mom must be living right now.
