Blessings for the Day

1. Morgan Kate's feeds have been increased to 40ccs. This is great not only for her growth, but her increased appetite. The steroids have made her quite fussy and food seems to soothe her. Sounds a little like her mommy!

2. She weighed in tonight at four pounds and twelve ounces. She hasn't gained any weight, but she hasn't lost any either. I am thinking that the slow down in weight has been because of the lasix and that she is getting rid of some fluid. 

3. God is so good! Her oxygen has been 27% - 28% all day long! Oh my goodness, what a relief. They have reduced the pressure on her CPAP from +6 to +5. Once she gets down to +3 we should be moving back to the nasal cannula. Yahoo! 

4. My awesome neighbor and dear, dear friend Mary and her mom threw a shower for me tonight. It was so, so very nice and Morgan Kate got so many nice things! I can't wait for her to see them all. Thank you Mary and Ms. Kathryn!

I know I promised pictures, but you'll have to wait one more day. My camera is at the hospital, my memory card is here at home - too many things to remember...

The oxygen level news is exciting and I can imagine how touching it was to see Morgan Kate in a big girl crib and in real clothes. You guys are amazing. Thank you for your posts so we can all keep up with your family. We continue to keep you in our prayers.
