Daily Dose: Tuesday, February 17
Hope had a good day today. While she didn't gain any weight, she didn't lose any either so she remains at 1370 grams. She had her bi-weekly eye exam and everything appears to be developing normal so far!
The surgery department looked at the sutures in Hope's neck and are planning on taking the remaining stitches out this evening. Hope was ALREADY on her best behavior which I'm sure has absolutely nothing to do with the sugar water she may get.
They also are talking about her reconnection surgery, which is termed a "take down". They think that might occur when she was grown to around 2000 to 2500 grams. Since that is still 1000 grams away, Hope will probably be in the hospital for a month past her due date.
Hope enjoyed her time snuggling with Mommy today, as you can see from the picture above.
