A little Hope update...she got the OK to start taking more in her bottle. She is now up to 70 mls every 3 hours. She is almost 8 pounds (3.68 kilos). Today she was 3.43 which is 7 lb and 8.98 oz...really close. She is also spending more time awake which is great. She likes to hang out and check everything out. She also loves to be carried around the house in the evening...around 7pm she is really awake and really wanting to be walked through the house. I know it drives Jerry crazy because he gets to see her every day during her cranky time, but it just makes me realize how 'normal' she really is!
Hope got her Synagis shot today. Synagis provides antibodies to babies to keep them safe from RSV...which would cause Hope really bad problems if she were to get it. I feel so much better now that she has her shot. This is the first shot/vaccine she has received and it is going to be a heck of a week for her. On Friday she gets her 1 month vaccinations...she wasn't allowed to get them until 6 weeks after her surgery. I know there are a lot of people that have different opinions on vaccinating, but I am all for it. I want Hope to be vaccinated against everything.
That's about it for now. Please keep the prayers coming for our family and all of our friends. Prayers work...as everyone that meets Hope knows and everyone could use a good prayer.
