Day 20: Why all the pictures mom?

I don't think Liviana quite understood why I was so anxious to take pictures of her. She went along with it though, smiled and played along. She must of heard us talking and realized that the pictures were going to be posted because she promptly pulled out her NG tube so you would all get to see pictures of her face completely tube free. Much to her chagrin, they replaced the NG-tube, which she accepted before falling asleep on momma again. Here are the pictures she wanted me to share with you of her nasal cannula-free, breathing-on-her-own self. They are pre-NG tube removal, after NG Tube removal and after the new tube was placed and she dozed off. Her oxygen saturations never dropped all day. She truly amazes me. More tomorrow....It's off to bed for me.

She is a beautiful little girl. A little bit of Aria, a little bit of Miles and a whole lot of Livi all together. Such a sweetie.
