Happy 7 Weeks, Morgan Kate!

Okay, so I know I said I didn't have the heart to post a picture of Morgan Kate with the CPAP, but I changed my mind. At first I felt that is was cruel and not needed, but it seems to be helping her. I have prayed and prayed for her lungs to mature and asked God to heal them. Maybe, just maybe, this was God's way of healing her lungs. She still absolutely hates it, but it does seem to be working some. Her breathing is much slower (it was extremely fast) and her oxygen is down to 38%. She has another chest x-ray in the morning to take her a look at her lungs. Please pray that the CPAP has worked and that her lungs look better.

Morgan Kate is continuing to tolerate her feeds and is still growing, growing, growing. Tonight her weight stayed the same - 3.9 pounds. Travis and I are both thrilled with that and feel like it's an accurate weight. Last night she was quite fussy and we were trying to get everything completed in record time. Therefore, she may have actually been 3.8 last night and 3.9 tonight. She could reach 4 pounds by next weekend!!

My mom is doing well. It is killing her that she missed a weekend with Morgan Kate. We definitely missed her tons, but we want her to be home and to recover quickly. Thank you for all of your prayers!

Hey Heather!
I can't tell you how proud I am of your positive attitude and reliance on God. He will continue to see you through this one day at a time. We are praying for Morgan Kate's lungs. Love, Aunt Terry
