After visiting with Hope all afternoon, Jerry and I went to his parents for stuffed cabbage for his dad's birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! His mom makes the best stuffed cabbage in the world.
I finally got a baby book for Hope. My mom went shopping today and bought one. I don't know why I didn't have one, but I definitely need to spend some time getting it up-to-date.
Hope also got a wonderful card from her cousin Dominic. It is a wonderful get-well card. The hospital has a new policy that no one under 12 years old can visit, so even though Dominic has been there to visit before, he is not allowed to visit anymore. It is sad that the boys can't visit either. It was nice knowing that they were close while I was visiting with Hope. Now it will be hard for them and for me. I just can't wait until she comes home!
Please keep Hope in your prayers that she will be strong enough to come off the oxygen. I really want to hold her and feed her and it breaks my heart that I have not been able to for over a week.
I found the following picture on another babies blog and I loved it! I just had to share with everyone because it shows just how much of a role I believe God played in helping our daughter.
