Merry Christmas to Me

Remember Baby L?  She was born with a chest full of fluid and a swollen body, and at one point in the ICU we had run out of chest tube options and prayerfully and sadly used the last one, thinking we were at the end of her life.  She's a miracle survivor.  Today she came back for a normal 2-month check-up.  Gaining weight, smiling even.  But not as widely as her two happy parents, who showed her off in the ICU and nursery at my request, to encourage the nurses who work so hard where so many die.  This is what Christmas is all about, babies in danger, rescued by the baby who entered our world dangerously. And moments of joy.
