She's one of ours

Hope's eye surgery went well yesterday. The opthamologist was able to do a more thorough job on her immature eyes than she thought would be possible. So she may not need a second surgery. It's still too early to tell. But today when Carla and I went in to see her she was wrapped up like this. Carla was wondering why she was wrapped up so weird, like they were trying to tie her arms down. We asked the nurse if she had been pulling at her tube. "Well, she was doing that too. But I mostly did that because she kept putting her hand down in her diaper while I was trying to change her." Sounds like an Isaac kid. Now if she'd just have fingers in her mouth while the other hand was down there, she'd have it just about right. Maybe Andy or Mary can show her.

I just got off the phone with Hope's nurse. She just lost almost 6 ounces today. She's back to 3 lbs 2 oz. The nurse said it's no big deal- it was just fluid. But it is a big deal when you only weigh 3 lbs! That is so discouraging. If we don't get some good news soon I'm going to scream!


  1. Scream if you need to, just make sure it's not near your baby! But mostly just trust that she's in God's very capable hands! I know, easier said than done, but read His Word and be reminded of how faithful our God really is!

  2. Praying for you. That sounds like good news on the surgery. At least it's going to be October tomorrow. :) One more month down, hopefully less than one to go.
