This was a surprise to us. We hadn't even asked if it was possible because we assumed it wouldn't be from the ICU, but Tricia's nurse (our new favorite) suggested it. You might notice that Tricia is on oxygen and not a vent...the first time we've visited Gwyneth without a Respiratory Therapist in tow.
Agnes had her ready for us when we arrived, and after a few minutes of crying, she settled into Tricia's arms like nothing had changed. Although Tricia's voice is very weak and raspy (normal for transplant patients), this is the first time Gwyneth has ever heard her voice as more than a whisper. It was awesome for me to hear Tricia talking to her baby for the first time as well.
