We have increased the amount of formula we are giving her and she is up to 2 ounces every 3 hours. She pretty much sucks down the bottle in just a few minutes. I am thinking we may need to switch to bigger bottles pretty soon...or move up her calories on her current bottles. We are waiting to talk to the dietitian to see which is the best route to go.
Jerry had to move his 4th birthday party to this weekend because all of his cousins were sick, so Hope will finally be able to meet most of her family. I just told everyone to make sure that all of them were feeling fine and if someone is sick we would prefer they stay at home. I know some people may consider us a little too over-protective, but we are really afraid of her catching anything. After the surgery itself, infections and viruses are the leading cause of death in heart babies. We are not willing to take that chance. We have gone through too much and Hope has gone through too much to catch a virus and end up back in the hospital.
I would like everyone to pray tomorrow for baby Travis. He is having his Norwood tomorrow and I know his mom and dad are really nervous. Thank you again for all the thoughts and prayers. Hope is doing better than anyone expected and I know it is because of the thoughts and prayers.
