August 2008

Cara’s now out of the special care nursery and, fingers crossed, will be home tomorrow. One or two outstanding tests could delay us by a day. We finally got a family snap. Someone though, wasn’t smiling for the camera until she was fed!


Cara’s graduated from intensive care back into special care. Everything looks like it’s progressing as it should, and we’re hopeful things are still on track to have her home soon.

We’re thrilled to announce the arrival of Cara Grace Jordan.

Born Tuesday 19 August at 10:38, weighing 3140g.
She is a much loved and anticipated addition to our family.

Unfortunately she’s still in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, and will be there for at least a few days as the doctors monitor her closely. Her serum ferritin levels were about 10x higher than Harry’s. However, most of the tests that have come back are positive, so we’re hopeful she’ll be ready to come home by the end of the week.
