She pooped! At 12:45 AM the nurse reported the "poop of all poops" came out of little Tess. Praise God, my baby is on her way home from the NICU!
To add shivers down your spine, today is the 1 year anniversary of my Father-in-law's death. (To new blog readers, last year on this exact date my husband lost his father less than 12 weeks after his first cancer diagnosis. We've waited for this conclusive sign of Tessie's healing from abdominal surgery for over 12 days now. Thanks Dad!)
