The good news: no news is good news. Which is why we haven't updated lately. But we thought we'd give you a little update on what Hope's been doing lately.

Last week Hope had a busy week after she came home from the hospital. She had many adventures. She went to her first appointment with her pulmonologist. They were a little concerned because she appears to be very "healthy" in her weight. Her diet was adjusted so hopefully her increase in protein will help her grow longer and leaner.

Hope also had an appointment with her hearing doctor. Hope was a very good girl and sat very still in Daddy's arms while doctors took impressions of her ears to make the molds that her hearing aids will be built out of. Her hearing aids should be coming in the next few weeks and we'll be very excited to see what kind of an effect they have on Hope's ability to hear.

Hope also took her first walk around the orchard. Daddy put Hope in her baby bjorn on his chest, Mommy pushed Hope's kid-kart, and Grandpa R hauled all the bags full of "very important" things while Hope walked the long way, around the orchards, to Great-grandma's house for lunch. Hope loved doing all these things and is glad the weather has stayed nice and warm for her.


  1. Aw, thank you for the update! We pray you are just enjoying your time as a family together.

  2. We hope things are continuing to go well and that the nursing care is becoming more stable to allow you some down time. We think of all of you often and are keeping you in our prayers.

    Enjoy this beautiful weather!
    Carol Z.

  3. It is great that you were able to head home. Hope will get longer and leaner when she starts crawling and moving more. Thanks for the updates.
