Daily Dose: Tuesday, June 23

Hope did not have her swallow study done today. The doctor called a few minutes prior to the scheduled time and said he couldn't make it, postponing it until next Tuesday. This is a little disappointing as everyone wanted to know how Hope was doing on her swallowing and possibly increasing her oral feeds. The doctor did approve her to resume her daily bottle feeding while she waits for the study.

Hope had an eye exam today. The exam showed no changes so she will have her eyes checked again before discharge. As you can see, Hope is really getting used to her new surroundings and is really hamming it up. She loves to get her beauty sleep, so the eye mask that she had to wear after the eye exam was welcome!!

  1. Dear Emily,
    I am a photographer in New Zealand, and one of the thousands of readers of the story of Grace.
    In your area is a program called Whispers. They photograph children in hospitals. I would like to see a really good photo of Grace on her blog, taken with proper lights etc. and now she can get on the floor and is six months old ....
