Mara is doing extremely well – afterall, she is a fighter just like her mommy. Her billirubin is on a downward trend, which is a good sign of progress (provided that it stays on that trend).  The doctors still can’t give us any idea of when we may be able to take her home, rather, they just tell us that “all we can do is wait and see.”  As many of you who are parents already know, that really sucks.  We really want her to get better, regardless of how long it takes.  But feeling helpless when it comes to your child and then not being able to hold your newborn child on top of that is pretty much the definition of suck.

Ben is still with grandma and grandpa, and is apparently having a great time about it.  This is the longest that he’s been away from either of us, and he’s taking it better than we are.  We miss him, but get to see him tomorrow.  So there is a silver lining in the clouds, afterall.



  1. You and your family are in my thoughts, as I am sure you are in all of your friends’ thoughts. We love you. Be strong. Let us know what you need; we’ll be there in a minute.

  2. We are praying for you. Stay strong and remember how loved you are. We are here if you need anything. We love you all!

  3. I heard through the grapevine that not all was well with Mara. I hope you get to hold and nurse her even during her treatments. I’m thinking of you all and sending good thoughts your way and strength to Mara.

  4. My prayers are with you all. Mara is adorable and you did a great job again on the name!!! =)
