Sweet Sweet Lily Joy! Life does not always start out as expected, as was the case for Lily and her parents. Her parents delight quickly turned to their worst nightmare soon after her birth. A healthy pregnancy and routine delivery should equal excitement as your newborn is placed in your arms minutes after delivery but instead Lily was rushed off to the NICU. Precious little Lily had a partially collapsed lung! Could you imagine hearing those words? Could you imagine not holding your newborn? Not being able to nurse her right away? And going home without your baby?
Turns out Lily was going to meet and beat any expectations the Dr. put on her! Way to go Lily!!
She is now healthy and at home with her parents and growing by leaps and bounds. At just one week old, she’s already gained 11 oz!
Congratulations Rob & Jilly, you are truly blessed!
Here’s Lily at just 8 days old!
