Our Little Ewok
This picture was taken last night. We are getting ready to see her and find out if this stays. The "beard" or chin strap is to keep her mouth closed while resting so that the oxygen goes to her lungs and not out her mouth. In addition, she has the oxygen tube and a hat and a blanket. This is just after one of her tantrums, so her eyes are puffy from the wailing. Bad news for the nurses: she's audible now. She hasn't quite learned her cry and her vocal cords are still swollen, but look out. It won't be long now!
