Happy 8 month birthday Faith! Wow can you believe it's been 8 months already? Even though we've gone through some tough times, we are so blessed with our little miracle! She's sure come along way! Faith is smiling more than ever now- we've waited 8 months to see a "reactive" smile- she just started doing this last week. Interestingly she only smiles in her crib! We are glad she has a place where she feels safe and happy! Faith also looks the best she has ever looked. She is breathing MUCH easier (she's not even retracting!) and sounds pretty clear (she still receives breathing treatments every 4 hours to clear her lungs). Even though she is in the hospital we are all very happy. The move was refreshing for us, and we are so pleased that Faith is making progress. SO what's next? Well, even though Faith looks stables she is still a fragile girl. Before the h word can be mentioned again she needs to be REALLY stable. We also are waiting for nursing- we lost most of our nurses so we are in the same boat as all of the other families who are currently waiting for 24/7 nursing. Which we don't mind at all- it's pretty ironic but home is the LAST place we want to be with Faith! Although it is a sacrifice we are perfectly content with her safely growing in the hospital! (Funny how things change, huh- well if you'd see your baby almost die twice after coming home you'd be feeling the same way!)
Well that's about it today!
Thanks for stopping by!
Brian and Jen :)
PS: Faith wants to say "Go Rockies!" She's enjoying watching the games on her new TV! (Pics of this coming soon!)
