Daily Dose: Monday, March 9
Hope had another good day today. She has a new attending doctor that will be taking care of her until March 27th. She had no big developments, which is a good thing, today. She is still on her vapotherm and tolerating her feeds. Hope seems to be struggling a little to digest her feeds, at least more so than the last time her feeds started back up. But the doctors are still pushing forward, so she's still getting her feeds. Hopefully she picks up on the digesting soon.
Hope had some physical therapy today. The therapist worked with Hope for a while and determined that she is actually doing really well, for right now at least. Given all the setbacks and challenges she has had thus far, along with the implications of the PVL, this is really good news. This doesn't guarantee that things will be smooth sailing forever, but for today and right now Hope is doing well and we are all very thankful for that.
Now... for the update on the Biggest Fatty.... today, Hope weighed in at 1820 grams which is..... drumroll......................
4 POUNDS!!!!! Way to go Hope!!
As you can see from the picture above, the fashion show continues. Hope is modeling a cute little outfit from Mommy's cousin Kelly and her husband Jerry. Hope said she really likes this ensemble from the Hope Collection and she sends a great big THANK YOU to cousins Kelly & Jerry.
