Good News Tuesday!

Patty and Sarah just returned from Children's and things are continuing to look up for our little one. Her liver numbers are all basically normal or very close to normal. Some of her red blood count numbers are high but they attribute that to the fact her body is trying to fight off a cold (like the CMV). She is now 15 1/2 pounds - she gained .25 lbs from just last Thursday which is outstanding. Yeah, Sarah!

The docs have now authorized her to be off the NG tube feedings for six hours per day instead of four to see if she will resume breastfeeding normally since her weight is looking good. On top of that, they said next week the broviac line can finally come out of her chest.

Praise God for His faithfulness and thank all of you for your continued prayers.



  1. Yay! So exciting! We will keep praying!!

  2. Great news!!!! Thanks for the update. Wonderful. I am so glad to hear how well Sarah is doing. It's been quite a journey to this point. May Sarah continue to do well.

    I hope things are starting to settle down into a semblance of less-craziness at home now that everyone is together and Sarah's health is stabilizing.

    Giving thanks,

  3. Great news! Breathe a deep sigh of relief for a change:) Hope you are enjoying all your family being in the same place.

    God bless,
