Day 99!

Sorry it has been a while since we've updated the blog. We have been more involved in Faith's care (feeding her etc.) which has required extra time at the hospital. Faith is hanging in there. The good news is she has been gaining weight. She is now 4 pound, 12 ounces. Faith continues to have trouble breathing. She is very striderous. Her airways are still very swollen. As a result she is on CPAP, unless she is being fed (then she is on the cannula). We are a little concerned that she might need a surgery to open up her airways. We are waiting for Faith to grow more before any decisions are made. Tomorrow is Faith's eye exam. This will be a huge day for her. Please pray that the Plus disease has corrected and she will not need a third eye surgery. This is a hard week for as, as Faith will be 40 weeks tomorrow. Back in February we were counting down the days until May 15th. Now that May is here we are bummed that Faith is still not healthy, and will not be coming home any time soon. Nevertheless we have been blessed to get to know her 3 1/2 months early! It has been such a joy to watch her grow.
Thanks for all of your prayers!
Brian and Jen
