A setback

We learned a few hours ago that Jossie had a brady episode last night at 7 p.m. - four hours shy of going the required five days with no episodes. I'm not sure why the nurses didn't tell us sooner, but here we are. We are very disappointed, especially because we let ourselves start to dream she might come home tomorrow. Jack and I even decorated our front door to welcome her home.

But we are comforted that she is a healthy baby. The brady episode lasted 10 seconds and she self-recovered from it.  It's a result of her being a preemie and her brain just needs to develop a bit more to figure out how everything functions.

Five days from last night is 7 p.m. on Sunday, and on Monday, she'll be 36 weeks gestational age. We will get through this and someday we'll look back at this as just a brief moment in our family's history. Thank you for continuing to follow our story and sending your love and support.
