Daily Hope: Saturday, February 7

Hope: day 62

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.

  1. Hi sweet baby girl!!! I just read like 2 weeks worth of updates on you. I'm so proud of you - you are going to continue to inspire and encourage others and you don't even know it yet! We still pray for you a lot and we think about you even more. You may have heard the big news in our house, we are quite shocked but we know that our God is big enough for all the little babies in the whole wide world, just like precious you and these precious ones. I am thankful for these updates, and I think you are fabulous. Much love, snuggles, hugs and kisses!!!!
