Sack of Flour

She did it! She made it to 5 lbs! She is also 18.1 inches long and in a big girl crib now. Woo hoo! Her lab work came back and it is all normal now - white blood cell counts and the number that indicates inflammation. Her liver is functioning better and her bone marrow is working hard. Tomorrow they are going to schedule her barium enema and then they'll call the doctor to schedule surgery. The nurse practitioner really wants it done soon. Her stool was really liquid today because she's not absorbing nutrients well. They took her back down to 30 mls every 3 hours to try and help with that. But she basically just needs to be put back together. Please pray that everything goes well with the surgery. Thanks!


  1. Hey, back online again and I had a bunch of posts to catch up on! I can't believe how far she has made it... I was thinking of this summer when everything was so up in the air. This time reading the blog I don't have to think "has she made it another day?" Praise God! What a road this has been though. You said you are in the home stretch... our social worker calls it "cautiously optimistic" and I think that's a good way to look at it! Way to go Hope!!!

  2. Way to go Hope!!! Good going girl. We will pray for a safe recovery and a speedy surgery recovery. Amazing. God Bless.

  3. Praying for your sweet little girl!
