Saturday evening Maddie spent the night at the hospital with Kathryn and I. It was a wonderful girls spend the night party. We ate cereal in our beds at about 8:30 before bedtime and we snuggled for a while - all three of us girls!!
Sunday at a diaper shower given for us in honor of Kathryn by our Sunday School class (yet another outpouring of their support of our family!), we were given a prayer quilt for Kathryn. It has strings on the blanket that had many knots in the strings. Each knot represents a prayer said for Kathryn. I have brought it to the hospital and placed it over her as she sleeps so that she is truly covered in prayer and that each person who visits can tie another knot in her prayer quilt. I know that everyone can not visit her so I thought that I would throw this out. For anyone who would like to pray for her, please post a comment on this site and I will print all the comments. I will take the prayers back to her hospital room and pray each of them at her bedside and tie a knot for each prayer. So if you would like to add a knot to Kathryn's prayer quilt, please respond here.
I will take pictures and post them later. It is difficult to post pictures from the hospital - I have to wait until I am home!!
Kathryn's spinal tap is tomorrow. Please pray that it is negative for meningitis. It still will not mean that we are going home since her oxygen is still increased. Both the doctors and Greg and I are not sure that we have gotten the right mix yet for her medicines for her to be able to come home yet, but hopefully it is not too much longer. She is up to 6 pounds, 7 ounces by the way. She has also started to take 2 1/2 to 3 ounces per feed and is now skipping the 2 am feeding. She has slept from 10:30 pm to 6 am for 3 nights in a row now!!
Please keep praying and comment if you have a prayer you would like for me to pray over her and add a knot to her prayer quilt!
