Daily Dose, Wednesday March 18
Hope had an episode free day today!!! Hopefully these will continue and she'll continue to breathe well and keep her heart rate up.
Hope is ALMOST to her 2000 gram weight goal. Her bed also serves as a scale and it is not always exactly accurate. The first weight they took today was actually 2000 grams, but they usually do at least 2 or 3 weights to get the most accurate. They weight they took as the final weight for today was 1990 grams (4lbs 6oz) - only 10 grams away from her goal!! The surgery team is thinking of doing Hope's reconnection surgery sometime next week, but nothing is scheduled for sure yet.
She got lots of cuddle time in today: cuddling with mommy, daddy, Grandpa Robinson and Grandma Robinson. She's looking forward to cuddling in the next day or two with Grandma and Grandpa Holtz!!
