Quick update:
- The nugget passed her newborn hearing test today -- yay!
- She had another eye exam, and her retinas are ALMOST mature (not a big deal, since we are still 2.5 weeks before her due date). We will probably only have to have one follow-up with the pediatric opthamologist in 3 weeks to make sure they finish maturing.
- The cardiologist came today to make sure her PDA is totally closed ... no word on that yet, but we will keep you updated.

Josh and I are currently settling into our room just off the NICU, as we are rooming-in tonight.
Please pray that we don't kill our nurse ... she has never had Phoenix ever before (not sure why they decided to do that), but she treats us like we are totally incompetent. She stood over me while I changed the diaper, micromanaged Josh while he fed her a bottle, etc.
So, here we go. Trial run at full-time parenting.

Here are some pictures of our set-up:

Our room for the night

Time for eats

This thing is going to steal my sanity in the coming days

Daddy's girl
Will let you know tomorrow how we survived!
