Day 15

Day 15 Update: One visit to the pediatric cardiologist.  Three VSDs (holes in the heart).  One underdeveloped left side of heart.  One ductus still wide open allowing Allegra's heart to keep functioning.  No new or definitive information.  One weigh in for Allegra (now 3lb. 11oz.).  One visit from the hospice nurse.  Feedings now every 1 1/2 hours.


  1. You have one tough little girl..she is so sweet. I love the pictures of you and her. You both are beautiful. We are thinking of you all and wishing you lots of baby time!!

  2. Wow. What a little miracle. SO glad Ky could come and meet her. Lots of love.

  3. Ranier Maria Rilke wrote, "Life gives us two great gifts, love and death. Mostly they are passed on unopened."

    Allegra, you are one little bundle of joy and sadness pulling the ribbons apart with each day you stay.

    Touching the photos on my screen, listening to your song, getting to know you, feeling all the love that surrounds you, grateful for it all,


  4. One very strong family...and one village praying for a miracle...
