Updates and Blessings for 10.20.08

1. Morgan Kate is continuing to tolerate her feeds. 

2. Morgan Kate weighed in at four pounds and five ounces or 1950 grams. Remember, when she was born she only weighed 790 grams. Wow!

3. The CPAP pressure has been reduced to +4. When we left tonight Morgan Kate was on 30% oxygen. If this continues then they will try taking her off of the CPAP and put her back on the nasal cannula. Please pray that God will give Morgan Kate strength and continue to heal her lungs.

Hey Heather!

I can't believe Morgan Kate is over 4 pounds!!! Wow! She is such a ray of sunshine every time I see a photo, and yes she does look just like her daddy. We love you and pray for your strength daily. What an awesome mother you are! Of course, you had an excellent role model in your mom. Love, Aunt Terry

Oh Heather!! Morgan Kate is getting so big! I know that sounds funny when it's only a little over 4 pounds, but wow! Have you been able to dress her yet? I remember you saying she could wear clothes after 4 pounds, but I wasn't sure if you still had to wait. She is adorable--I love the picture with her eyes open--so alert!! And so beautiful!!

I LOVE reading Morgan Kate's daily updates!!! I cannot believe that she is already over four pounds!! I cannot wait to meet her and see her precious face in person. The cpap is sooo scary looking. I don't blame her for being fussy about it, but I know it is doing good things for her. Hope you and Travis are well!! Preston and I miss ya'll!! Not much longer and Morgan Kate can be introduced to Preston alter ego...:)!!! If u every need Prestons help "jiggling" the cord on the cpap, just let us know!! Love, Liz and Preston

Wow!! I can't believe Morgan Kate is over 4 pounds now! It seems like forever ago that I ran into you in the NICU and had the pleasure to meet Morgan Kate. She's come such a long way since then, and I love reading about her progress. Please know that you, Travis, and Morgan Kate are in my prayers daily. Your strength is such an inspiration!!

She is getting to be such a big girl! She will be home soon and wanting to sleep in the bed with you, Travis, and Lola. Trust me on this.

Thank you Kaky, she showed me how to leave a comment. I eagerly check the blogspot each night for Morgan Kate's progress. You and Travis are such great parents. I always knew Morgan Kate had some of her Aunt Rhonda in her and now that I see chubby cheeks and baby fat --I'm so proud--that's the Aunt Rhonda in Morgan Kate---.Sorry I missed you today at the Hospital. Can't wait to hold little Chubby cheeks Morgan Kate.
Love, Aunt Rhonda
