Daily Hope: Saturday, February 7
HAPPY 2 MONTH BIRTHDAY to HOPE!!!! Hope celebrated her 2 month birthday with Mommy & Daddy today (as Grandma & Grandpa R drove back to Michigan). Today was a much better day for Hope. She didn't have any, repeat... ANY, as in none, zero zilch, nada... major "episodes" today. The blood cultures still looked good which means it is most likely that Hope doesn't have an infection, so that is good news. Her blood gasses were good this morning and because they have been stable for a few days they will not draw them again until Monday morning. So.... if Hope behaves, no pokes on Sunday!!!
Hope has decided to compete again in the Biggest Fatty competition. She is up to 1190 grams (2 pounds 9 ounces) which is only 1 gram away from 2 pounds 10 ounces!!! Her feedings have gone well, especially considering she gained weight. We are very excited for this new added "fluff" to Hope and looking forward to it continuing.
