Well it's official...Faith has been in the hospital for 130 days...and we are exhausted. Today it finally hit. It has been very draining and we've had enough! Faith is still not eating, and having a difficult time breathing. The next few weeks are crucial as we will have to make some big decisions regarding Faith. If she continuous to not eat she may need a g-tube (a feeding tube inserted into her stomach so we will feed her through her tummy at home). She is now 45 weeks gestation, way past the developmental milestone of beginning to nipple. Yes, this means another surgery (on the vent again) but may ultimately help her. We are going to wait a few more weeks before the decision is made- until then we are going to have FAITH that it will not come to that.
Thank you for keeping Faith in your prayers,
Brian and Jen
