The IV's are back. :(

Today we received the news that Faith has a staph infection in her lungs. This could have contributed to her difficulty in breathing over the past few days (and why she couldn't stay on CPAP). They are going to give her antibiotics through an IV for the next 7-10 days. The silver lining in this cloud is that today they were going to start the steroids but cannot do so until the infection clears up and the antibiotics have been administered. This gives Faith another week to grow so when they do take her off the vent she will have more strength. The Lord sure works in mysterious ways!!! ;) The infection is not affecting any other part of Faith's body- she is maintaining a good temperature and eating all of her feeds. She is up to 7.5 ML of breast milk every hour. It is working because she now weighs a whooping 2 pounds 4 ounces!!!

While it is unfortunate that Faith has another infection and has to stay on the vent, we are happy that she can be steriod free for a little while longer!
Thanks for checking in today!
Brian and Jen :)

Wow God does work in mysterious ways doesnt He. God KNOWS what He is doing. This week could be the week Faith gains weight and gets stronger. I am glad she wont be on steriods and HOPE and PRAY she wont have to be. 2 pounds 2 oz...wow she doing it! She is a tough little one isnt she..its all about FAITH!
We love you..you are in our prayers always.
