Hi, my name is Samantha Lynn Stout but my mommy and daddy call me Sam, and you can too! If you have been following my story, you know it's been a rough week for me :( I was born on June 2, 2010. I weighed 7lbs 14oz and was 21 inches long! I don't know if you know my mommy, but I was a huge baby for her 4'10" self :) Once I was born, I got to see my mommy and she gave me a yummy meal for all my hard work, then they shipped me off to the nursery. I have lived there for the past week. They have stuck me with needles, put tubes down my throat and nose, stuck an oxygen tube in my nose, given me x-rays, and more. It's been tough :( In the past few days, I have been getting so much better! First they took out my feeding and oxygen tubes and let my mommy feed me!!! Then they took out my IV, and moved me into a big girl bed. My mommy and daddy even got to put me in my own jammies today!! Don't I look snug as a bug???
Now here's the fun news...my doctor said I get to come home as early as FRIDAY!!! If not Friday, then Saturday! I am so excited! My mommy and daddy said that they have lots of fun stuff for me at our house! I can't wait to get a bath in my own bath, sleep in my own bassinet, meet my sister and my family, meet my parent's friends, and more!
Please pray that I can come home Friday! Please pray that when I get home that I will continue to improve and eat well. Please pray for my parents, that they continue to feel the peace and love of God and family and friends surrounding them. Thanks for all the prayers so far, they have been appreciated!!! Hope to see you tomorrow from my own home!!!!
