Way Big

She did it! Our little girl finally broke the 1000 gram mark (she's 1010 to be specific). She can officially be handled without gloves. She gained another 30 grams today. That makes a total of 120 (roughly 4 oz) over the past 5 days. Woo hoo! Do ya think she was wanting to eat or something? She is still swapping back and forth between the cpap and nasal cannula. There's not much other news. At this point she just needs to keep growing and getting stronger. God is good!

As for the rest of the family... we still have a mild cold floating around so we weren't able to visit Hope this weekend. But we did get out for a hike this afternoon, which was really nice. It makes me feel a little guilty to be having fun while Hope is in the hospital, but we do need to take care of the rest of the family too. If only we could be everywhere, doing everything that needs to get done! We are thankful that God is holding our Hope while we can't.

Thanks again to all of you for praying for us.

  1. We're still praying and thinking about you! I'm so glad Hope is growing and progressing. She's an amazing little girl. :)

    Hiking as a family sounds fun and refreshing. We miss you a ton and I'm sure you are looking forward to life getting back to normal. God bless!
