I praise You because I am fearfully
and wonderfully made;
You works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
Psalm 139:14

Today was a good day! We found out early this morning that as of right now Morgan Kate does not need another blood transfusion. Apparently the iron is working and her numbers continue to look good. She is continuing to tolerate her feedings and is currently at 10.4 ccs an hour. Her little tummy is so big and round - sounds crazy, huh - but it's true. I was worried about it at first, but I know it's just all that food in her tiny little belly. She had a really good afternoon and slept so well. Tonight she was really alert for a little while and weighed in at two pounds and eight ounces. We couldn't believe that she had gained another ounce - she is now two and a half pounds. Way to go, Morgan Kate! She will not have her eye exam this week. We thought she might have it tomorrow, but it looks like it will most likely be next Tuesday. Please continue to pray that the eye exam goes well. 

Don't forget to check out the photos to the right - pictures of Morgan Kate and Daddy "rooing". Also, I have added some pictures of the day Morgan Kate was born. You can find those photos in the second slideshow to the right. Enjoy!

Heather,
It is good to hear that little Morgan Kate is growing so much. It's good to know that someone looks forward to gaining a little. Ha ha ha!
My Sunday school class talks about her every week--no telling what I will have to share on Sunday.
Please know that you are on my mind lots. Love you,
monica

Heather,
I truly look forward to reading your blog every morning and hearing how wonderful Morgan Kate is doing. She is a beautiful little girl and has such wonderful parents. Cliff was asking what "kangarooing" was so now he'll be able to see the pics!
Love ya!
Laurie

Good morning Heather -
I also look forward to reading your updates every day. I printed one of Morgan Kate's pictures & put it in our Sunday School room so that everybody could see this precious little girl we're all praying so hard for! There sure is a big difference in how she looks now compared to how she looked on her first day! Keep up the good work Mom, Dad & Morgan Kate & you'll be home before you know it!
Love,
Kathy C.
