Daily Hope: Tuesday, February 10

Hope: day 65

Hope had a little excitement last night. She had an "episode" so they ran bloodwork, did a chest x-ray, blood culture, and a urine culture. The chest x-ray showed she had poor expansion, so she is now on percussive treatment and an inhaler. We are still waiting on the results from the cultures. The CBC bloodwork showed that her crit was low, so she also had an infusion, which makes her color much better!!

Hope's weight gained 100 grams overnight!!! That is a whopping 1340 grams, 2 pounds 15 ounces (which is just 21 grams short of 3 pounds!!!) But, we don't want to get TOOO excited because the weight could be a bit inaccurate and show a loss tomorrow, so we just have to weight and see!! (pun intended)

Hope was a movie star today as well, she was videotaped during her percussive treatments. We'll post those a little later.


  1. Hey its Anna!! Hope and I both had a busy day. I stayed home with the flu!! But Hope is much stronger than me. I couldnt help but complaining about my stomach. Cant wait to see the video!

  2. Hi to all the Robinsons, it was great seeing Grandma and Grandpa R. at church on Sunday.

    We hope Hope is doing better now and that the results of all her tests come back without any signifant problems. Sending prayers your way, Hope!

    Our love to all,
    The Z's
