Daily Hope: Wednesday, February 4

Hope (day 59) with Mommy (age 30) and Daddy (age31)! HA!

Hope had another great day!! This morning they took her blood gasses, which were improved, so her CPAP pressure was lowered to 6. Her gasses were checked in the afternoon again and were still good, so Hope is now a 6 on the CPAP.

Hope got to snuggle with Mommy today and then got a special treat (which you can see in the picture above). Hope got to listen to her first concert. Daddy played Hope some tunes on his alto flute. Obviously Hope LOVED the private concert just for her, as did the nurses and everyone else in the unit.

Hope didn't gain any weight today, so she is holding steady at 1180 grams. The doctors are changing her food tonight. Currently Hope was on full breast milk but since that isn't helping her gain weight she is going to be changing to partial breast milk and partial IV feedings. Hopefully she'll tolerate that better and start gaining weight and truly become "the Biggest Fatty" (per Aunt Em's wishes).

  1. Hi Hope, what a wonderful gift your daddy gave you today. He is such a talented musician! You are a lucky little girl to have such loving parents.

    Love and prayers,
