Daily Hope: Tuesday, February 3

Hope: day 58

Today was a big day for Hope. It was cranial ultrasound Tuesday. Hope's ultrasound was good and showed no signs of change. Hope's feedings were lowered because her output (aka poop) is higher than is desirable. They will keep an eye on that and see what is going on with that. The good news is that she weighed in today at 1180 grams, which is 20 grams more than yesterday and she now weighs 2 pounds 9 ounces!!! Now that's what I call "the biggest fatty". Hopefully she continues to gain so she can win the competition, however, it appears she is only battling herself, so I suppose she will win no matter what, but don't tell her that, we want her to be competitive, ok, Aunt Em wants her to be competitive.

Hope's eyes were checked again today and all looks good thus far. They will be checked again in a few weeks. Hope also had a chest xray that looked much better than Sunday's, showing much better expansion.

Besides all those tests Hope managed to get some good snuggling in with Daddy today.


  1. Good review Hope! Most girls don't like the title "the biggest fatty" but for you I think it's GREAT!!! :-)

    Aunt Em.....a little competition never hurt anyone!

    Always in my prayers,

  2. Hi Robinson's! Wanted to send a note of support and good wishes to all of you. Glad to hear that Hope's tests came out good today and that she's gaining weight steadily.

    Hugs to all of you. You are in our thoughts and prayers every day.

    Love, The Z's
