    emoticon Love the nice weather although it was cooler here the past few days. Glad u r doing well. I'm committed to getting myself as healthy as possible and I know you are, too. My DD just had a second baby girl, Chloe' Renee on 3/4 & she was born at 35 wks again like her first baby, Chanel Ava, but this baby wasn't able to breath so she spent 17 days in the NICU. Thankfully, my DD had her at the Sacred Heart Hospital where the unit is located. It is in the top five hospitals in the nation for it's NICU. Chloe' was 5#13oz and she is now 6#9oz, so she has gained.
