Good days, better news

We received the good news today that a blood test we've been waiting aaages on showed no sign of congenital CMV infection for Girl Wonder. This is significant since the time at which she contracted the infection will likely have a huge impact on whether she'll face any of the scary long-term consequences I mentioned in my last post. Her infection, it appears, was post-delivery, which means she was probably-hopefully-please-gods-above strong enough to dispatch it in those horrible weeks in hospital, and it may not follow her around for life.

She still needs monitoring. It's not a guarantee. But we'll take it. Happily. Joyfully.

Other than that, we are starting to experience some version of 'normal' (more on which later), each day is more hopeful than the last, and we are soaking up every moment with this sweet girl.
