No news is good news

Alaina has had a wonderful week! They were able to turn of her oxygen so she is breathing completely on her own now. Also, the doctors let me start trying to nurse 2-3 times a day if I'm there. If you have any mail to send I can get you the address since I never leave now:) I think that the nurses are probably getting tired of seeing me there!

We are getting really close to being able to take her home. The ONLY thing that we're waiting on is for her to take all her feeds without needing any through the feeding tube. After she does that for 24 hours, they'll pull the tube and then observe her for 24 hours and we're home free!!! She's doing better but she'll get a few down and then have to tube some so the clock starts over again. We're both so ready and anxious that it's hard to be patient during this last leg!

Please pray that she continues healing and that she is able to come home soon!

That is awsome that she is doing so well....praying that she gets to go home soon, how exciting will that be walking out of the hospital, into your car and walking into your home with her. Yeah!!!

Sister Cat...that is sooooo awesome! Praise Jesus! I'm so happy for the two of you that you are so much closer to having her home. I will continue to pray that God gives you strength and grace as you endure this last little bit.

Love ya,
Mother Mary

WOW! I'm super excited for y'all! And no, the nurses aren't tired of seeing you there. They are probably ecstatic you are there because that is one less baby they have to change and feed! Praying for you guys!

What great news!! Yay Jesus! We are still praying for y'all and can't wait to meet your little bundle of awesomeness. Praying for patience in the coming days until she decides to eat without her tube. :) Love you guys!
