Blessings for 09.17.08

The Lord is faithful to all His promises and loving toward all He has made. 
Psalm 145:13

1. We received the results of Morgan Kate's brain ultrasound and once again they came back great. Last time there was no bleeding and the only thing they even noticed were that her two lateral ventricles were on the high normal side. Today there was no bleeding,one ventricle looked fine and the other was on the "slight" high normal side. The doctor said this is nothing to be concerned about and that they probably will not do another brain ultrasound until she is discharged. I am so thankful to God and to all of you for all of your prayers and words of support and encouragement. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

2. Morgan Kate "lives" in a little incubator. This incubator has a humidifier built in that helps preserve moisture around her body. However, she is now "old enough" and does not need the humidifier anymore. Therefore, she is still in the incubator, but they have turned the humidity off completely. Trav says, "Wow, they sure do grow up fast". Ha, ha!

3. And.........Morgan Kate gained another ounce. Yahoo! She is now 2 pounds and 4 ounces. I guess the rest and lack of movement is paying off. We are so happy about this and pray it continues.

4. One of the couples we have met in the NICU have a daughter that was admitted the week before Morgan Kate. She was born at 29 weeks gestation and they are getting to take her home sometime next week. We are so happy for them and wish them nothing but the best!! 

**I am adding some pictures of Morgan Kate's room to the slideshow on the right. There are also pictures of all her "machinery", as well as some pics of a special visitor today - Kelly Jean came and spent the day with Morgan Kate and I. It was so, so very nice and we already miss her!

Another ounce....YAY! It sounds like the quiet time and the extra calories must be working. Thanks be to God for the good scan also! You all remain in our prayers. Keep up the good work.
