As you can see from the pictures above, Hope is the most beautiful ladybug EVER!!! And Hope has a special message today:
Thank you Peggy for making my beautiful hat and making me a ladybug! You are the best! Love, Hope
And yes, that message was directly from Hope. As you can see, Hope is modeling a GREAT new hat. Peggy, Hope's respiratory therapist, made this special little hat just for Hope because Hope loves ladybugs. So now there is a little ladybug laying on a ladybug blanket. So cute!
With this sudden onslaught of homemade hats for Hope, I have decided that anyone out there who may be reading this, you can have a special entry that Hope dedicates to you. How does one achieve this? Buy sending your homemade hats or booties or mittens just for Hope. Hope will be so thankful that she will make a special entry just for you!! So if you are interested, just let us know! Hope has lots of days at the hospital ahead of her, so lots of opportunities for hats and other homemade apparel!!!
Hope had another good day today. They were going to be increasing her feedings, but, once again, Hope has made sure that everyone knows she is stubborn and she is in control. Hope's feedings were not increased because she was having a little bit of residual. a bit more than they wanted, so she is just maintaining her feedings for now.
Today Hope's daddy gave her a rating of 6.75. Grandpa thinks it is was at least a 6.76 but we'll stay with 6.75.
In other news.... due to popular demand Aunt Em will be returning to Indianapolis to hang out with Hope later this week. I know that Hope is excited!!!!!
