Daily Dose: Friday, April 17

Hope seemed to be in a much better mood today. Her vapotherm was turned down to 2 litres and she handled the change very well. In fact, it seems to be more comfortable for her! She didn't have any episodes today and her coloring is a little bit more pink so hopefully that is a sign she is making her own blood!

Today was another winner in the Biggest Fatty competition. Hope is up to 2890 grams, which is 6 pounds 5 ounces. Today was her last day on the antibiotics for the sore on her hand. After she got her last dose they took her central line out as well. She was a very very brave big girl during the procedure and didn't even flinch once when they did it (probably because she was ready for it to be gone!!). For now she is IV free!!!


  1. Years from now (when she is talking as much and as animated as her Aunt Em) we'll wonder who that baby in the video really was.

  2. What a sweetheart! I love seeing video of her, thanks!

  3. Love the pictures! I agree, down the road when she is getting into things that she shouldn't you are going to say - Who was that little one we sat with and worried about! God is good and answers prayers.
