Brynlee update

Brynlee is 4 lbs 1oz now and we thought she was going to go home this wed but she seriously failed her car seat test after only 20 min (she didn't even make it to the min) which is 35 minutes. and she had 2 more bradies last night so we don't know when she will be coming home and I told them not to even give me a date cause I didn't want to get my hopes up AGAIN and then have it not happen!!!I hope the bradies stop soon, cause this is getting, well, hard!!!

I know it is hard and we all feel the let-down, it will be worth it in the end and as Brynlee gains more weight and has a chance for her nervous system to develop, she will be ready to make the trip home. You are an awesome mother and have kept us all on the positive side of this challenge. Words can not express how much I love you and I've seen how this experience has shaped you into an incredible woman. You are truly a choice daughter of our Heavenly Father.

Oh Tifani, this must be so hard for you. Sending prayers your way and that your precious new addition gets to come home SOON! (btw, what does she have to do to pass her car-seat test?)

she has to be able to sit in the car seat buckled in for min of 35 minutes and then because of our long drive home she has to stay in for 1 hour 10 min. and not have her heart rate drop and stay breathing on her own. well after 20 min she quit breathing and her heart rate dropped and she turned blue. so yeah she TOTALLY failed that test. they are trying again in the middle of the night tonight. so we will see. say a prayer that she passes but I am thinking that 2 days isn't going to make much of a difference. but you never know i guess
