Daily Dose: Wednesday, April 1

Hope had a very frustrating day today. She is thinking that her ET tube is sooooo last month and wants it out.... NOW! Because of this frustration she spent some of her day being a little agitated.

To prepare Hope for the removal of her tube, which will hopefully be tomorrow, the doctors started her on a short series of steroids. These probably aren't going to make her any happier about things, but she does have a lovely weekend too look forward to as Aunt Em will be coming to visit and snuggle!!!

Today Hope had 3, yes THREE, bowel movements!!! The doctors seem happy with her healing and recovery progress.

Hope weighed in today at 2590 grams. Still continuing to grow, little by little.


  1. 3 poops! Way to go Hope!! Keep up the great work!!
    Love and prayers!

  2. She's awake!! It's so good to see her eyes open again. She looks very alert and like she's ready to "get this all over with" so she can start working on going home!

    I imagine there is going to have to be a timecard set up this weekend as all of you will be wanting to hold her, but Aunt Em will probably monopolize her as she hasn't gotten the chance to hold her yet. Just remember to share, everyone! :)

    Have a great day and an even better weekend as you are all together again.
