Today was quite an exciting day for Morgan Kate (and Mommy and Daddy)!

Blessings for the day:
1. Morgan Kate is still on the high flow nasal cannula! Her oxygen was between 32% and 38% all day. 

2. Her immunizations went well and she wasn't fussy afterward. She got three of them today and will get the other two tomorrow. Please pray that the immunizations tomorrow will go as well as the ones today.

3. She is continuing to grow, grow, grow and tonight she weighed in at four pounds and nine ounces. The nurse weighed her 3 times just to be sure and each time it said four pounds and nine ounces. So, our little girl is over four and a half pounds! 

4. And.....today they started to turn down the temperature in Morgan Kate's incubator. As long as she can maintain her temperature through the night and tomorrow she will move to a bassinet. Oh my goodness!!! She will be in a big girl bassinet (same bassinet newborns are in) and get to wear clothes. Travis and I are both on cloud nine and praying that Morgan Kate is able to maintain her body temperature. 

Prayer Requests:
-Please pray that Morgan Kate will continue to do well on the nasal cannula.
-Please pray that Morgan Kate will continue to grow and that her immunizations go well.
-Please pray that Morgan Kate will be able to maintain her body temperature.

I have been keeping up with Morgan Kate's progress every day. I want you to know that you, Travis, your Mom, and Morgan Kate are in my prayers every day. I am amazed at how strong your little girl is. I hope that she continues her growth and progress and I pray that her lungs continue to develop.
Just wanted to let you know that I was thinking about you and pulling for little Morgan Kate!

I can't believe how fast Morgan Kate is gaining weight. I read about her progress every night before going to bed and pray for all of you. I love the pictures. She looks like a newborn (even a little chubby!) I know she'll look so different the next time I see her. Love, Miss Laurel
