I was at the hospital for the morning with our family but left before lunch with Sadie. We ran a quick errand before coming home to get away from the snow storm. I was able to get some laundry done, tidy the house and at least consider cleaning it. I never did get any of the cleaning done. Sadie and I bundled up and did some shovelling. She eventually got cold and wanted to go inside, Uncle James came to finish it for us. Our neighbours on both sides have been such a blessing all winter. Every time it snows they have been out shovelling to make it easier for me to leave for the hospital each morning. My snow angels!
I was told this weekend that Hope will be taken to the OR on April 30th to have her varices looked at once again. Please join me in praying that they continue to heal and will not need to be treated. This would also show us that the pressures in her liver are continuing to improve. I truly pray that we are out of hospital before that date and are simply coming in for the day.
Hope is up to 10 mls per hour on her feeds and continues to tolerate them beautifully. She is growing, gaining weight and developing. It is such a wonderful thing to see and we praise God for the progress she is making. I also continue to pray that the Chylothorax does not return and we're able to bring her home before March ends. It may be an unrealistic dream, but it's one that I enjoy and choose to continue!
