Last night

A baby entered our pod. It brought back a lot of memories for me. This baby interestingly had a gastroschisis the condition we were originally diagnosed with. Dr Keller attended to her in the pod. If I was her parent I would not have been allowed to watch the procedure. Since we has been here all day watching Bayta they let us stay. The procedure required the attention of several nurses so Amanda kept bayta entertained while I played a bit with Ellis our next door neighbor. But truth be told I watched the procedure where they wrap the babies intestines in plastic and suspend them from the warmer above the crib with a very expensive paper clip. It was amazing. I wanted so bad to meet this babies parents and tell them everything Amanda and I have learned over the last 10 days. So far they haven't showed this am.
The baby seems to be doing great and they have already squeeZed over half of her intestines back Into place.
