Grandma and Grandpa Muenich came to pick up Emerson and took her to see the Greats and to visit Grandma Jackie. When they returned, we took some dads and daughters pics. Emerson refused to cooperate. As usual, she just wanted to sing, dance and goof around with Papa.
Yesterday, I took Zoe to the doctor to get her blood drawn once again. This time, I was really hoping she'd cooperate, but no such luck. It took 3 pokes to get her to give up 3 mL. She no longer calms with sugar water and chose to scream the entire time. The stress wore both of us out!
Things are going as well as expected at home. Zoe continues to gain weight. She eclipsed 8 pounds yesterday. We're pushing her to continue gaining and growing - the goal is lung maturation for her Stage II surgery. She is finally used to mommy's poking and prodding all day long. She really is a trooper!
