Day 46 - We are having pound cake at our house

Kathryn was weighed last night for the first time in a long time. Who's ready for this? . . . . . . .

Kathryn is 2 lbs, 3 oz!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't believe we have multiple pounds!!! We are celebrating tonight with pound cake at our house (and some for the nurses too!!) (She is still swelling, so some of that weight gain may be fluid retention, but I am trying to be optimistic to think that at most 3 ozs is fluid, so she still would be a 2 pounder!!)

She continues to hang in there with no additional oxygen right now. Her vent settings are down a little and now that she is off of the Pavulon, she can open her eyes and look at us. She was wide awake this morning when we went to see her!! I have a little bit of peace knowing that it looks as if Kathryn is making her way past this infection. (The doctors remind us that she is still fighting through it, but she may be nearing the other side of this one!)

We took Madelyn to the zoo today to meet Barbie, so Maddie had stories to tell Kathryn!! We'll go to the hospital this afternoon for a visit and then settle in to watch our Auburn Tigers.

Please continue to pray for Kathryn.
