Hello Friends!! I hope all is well with you. As for me, things are going OK. They still haven't fed me. Daddy says once they figure out what is going on with my tummy that they may start feeding me again. But that won't be for another week so I guess I will have to wait. Shucks! But I am still growing even though they are only giving me fluids through my PICC line. Today I weighed 4pounds 13ounces. I'll crack that 5 pound mark pretty soon. That will be pretty cool. Daddy says he gets a laugh everytime he is at the gym and looks at the little 5 pound plate and thinks of how it weighs more than me. But it won't be long before I weigh more than that silly plate and he will have to find something else to laugh at.
The doctors are pretty happy with how I have been doing over the last couple of days. In fact, they pulled out my replogle (drainage tube) today. It is soo much easier to breathe with that thing out of my face!! Not to mention, I am a bit more photogenic. Mimi came and spent the morning with me. We had a great time. Then, Poppy came and spent a couple hours talking to me and Daddy. I am one lucky girl to have such a loving family.
So, yesterday was awesome!! Daddy came in the morning for like 5 hours. He left for about 2 hours in the afternoon but then was back for another 2 hours in the evening. We got to kangaroo for a few hours and then he read me "When Will It Be Spring?". It's a book about a bear cub, Alfie, and his mommy. Daddy says that bears sleep aaallll winter long and that they wake up when the spring comes. Problem with Alfie was that he kept waking up early and his mommy got really annoyed with him waking her up. Finally he woke up and it really was spring. Daddy says that it is almost Spring outside and that everyone can't wait for it to be here. He says that Spring is when lilies bloom and that some day he will bring me lilies. I can't wait.
So the plan is the same for me. The doctors will be running some belly x-rays tomorrow to see if things are getting better. Please pray that they are. My doctors here spoke with those at Children's Hospital and told them to expect me there sometime on Monday. Once I am there, they will run some tests and figure out what's going on. Until then, it's just hurry up and wait.
Well, there isn't much more to report. I am just enjoying my last few days here with my Good Sam nurses. I hope they stay in touch. I love them so much. Well, I will blog to you soon.
Love you all so much, Lily
