Hope All Dressed Up
Hope had a great day today. She is doing very well breathing on the vapotherm. Although she isn't thrilled about still having prongs in her nose she thinks it's much better than the tube down her throat or the mask strapped to her face. Since she doesn't have those any more her nurse switched her feeding tube from in her mouth to in her nose. It doesn't sound very comfortable to mommy and daddy but the nurses say it's more comfortable for Hope.
Hope continued her breastmilk feedings today and is doing well with them. She is on small amounts right now (only 4mls every 3 hours) but they will slowly increase the amount as she tolerates it. She is still gaining weight steadily, weighing in today at 1790 grams (3lbs 15oz).
Hope cuddled with both mommy and daddy today, which made all three very happy!
Hope's great-grandma Vivian likes to dress up when she feels good so Hope thought that sounded good to her today since she was feeling so good. She put on a pretty pink outfit given to her by her friends Pat and John Durham and she put on a pretty pink hat sent to her by her friend Sierra and Sierra's mom, Penni. Hope (and her mommy and daddy) thank everyone for their beautiful gifts!
