Happy Wednesday everybody!! I hope you had a good day. I did. The doctors came by this morning and were talking about how pleased they were to see me doing soo much better. How much better you ask. Well, the pneumatosis is no longer there which is really good. Then they ran a blood test called a CRP (stands for C-Reactive Protein). Anyway, the test is to show the doctors if there is any inflamation going on in my body. My levels on Friday were 4.9 and today they were around 2.2. This means that the medicine is doing exactly what it is supposed to be doing. So I have to keep taking my medicine for a few more days and the nurses will continue to give me fluids through an IV for another 5 days or so. After that, they will slowly start feeding me milk again. I can't wait. I really miss that stuff and have been laying not-so-subtle hints to daddy that I am wanting to try feeding from a bottle (ie I am suckling a lot). Thank you all for your prayers. I can feel them working!!
On top of having like the best nurses EVER, I have people come visit me all the time. Like yesterday, Poppy came and spent a couple hours with me. One thing we have in common is our love for naps. So we took a nap together. Now, you really are not supposed to take naps with me while you are holding me but the nurses said that they were watching us closely and it was too cute to interupt. I guess both Poppy and I had our mouths completely open, perfectly content. Poppy says I have some serious nap potential which I guess is a good thing.
Both my mimis (McHugh and Cameron) come by everyday. And daddy, well he comes by twice a day. Once early in the morning and then again right after work. He brought me a present the other day. His name is Ribbit and he is a stuffed frog from a place called Build-A-Bear. Ribbit was the first gift he ever gave mommy and daddy says she hardly ever slept with him. I love Ribbit soo much and can't wait to sleep with him when I get older.
You probably are wondering how big I am. Well, even though they aren't feeding me milk, I weighed 3lbs 11oz tonight. Once they start feeding me the good stuff, I plan on smashing right past the 4lb mark. Daddy says we just need to keep heading in this direction and that I am not allowed to scare him like that anymore....Ha! Like it was my fault.
Anyway, thank you for following my blog and please keep up with the prayers. You all are AWESOME!! I am gonna go practice my napping. Love you all, Lily
