The pediatric neurologist...

came by to see Jill. Basically, she just confirmed everything else that the neonatal docs had said to us. It's a wait and see game. She hopes and expects that the shakes will go away with time, over a few days to a week. The positives are that she is aware, nursing, and she IS NOT having seizures. The negatives are her liver numbers (which as we know are improving), her tremors and the fact that she was oxygen deprived. If the shakes don't get better in a day or two, she will have a CT or MRI to get a better look, but again, she confirmed the ultrasound looked good.

Bottom line is we still don't know. She said that Jill could be 100% normal with zero issues, or she could be severely disabled with either tremors, learning disabilities, etc. However, she hopes that it will be gone within a week and things will be normal. We'll know more in a couple of days. So pray that it goes away, and that she keeps eating and doesn't need an IV.

Oh, my Goodness. Moving on from arrow prayers throughout the day to out and out crying to the Lord prayers for you and your sweet family. Lots of good news mixed in with some scary - keeping focused on the good.

Thank you for the updates.

Boy this can't be easy. I can't even imagine the roller coaster you guys are on. I'm visualizing that in another month the 5 of you are home all happy and healthy and this part was just a bad dream.

Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time.
