An update on our Charlotte!

I know that there are so many of you thinking about and praying for Charlotte.  We appreciate it so much!


She is now 3lb 7oz! (birth weight was 2lb 2oz)  Her mommy gets to hold her for an hour each day.


Daddy gets to put her back into her isolette!  She is still being fed through a feeding tube.


She gets worn out very easily.  She must have her CPAP on when not being held.  They are working on weaning her off at the rate of 1 hour at a time 3 times a day.

Our prayers right now are, that she will get strong enough to come home by her original due date of November 28!  Her lungs need to mature, and she has to be able to breath without the CPAP.  She is also needing to learn to nurse.

Thank you all so much for your kind words and encouragement since her birth!  Your love and prayers are what keep us going.

Thank you for sharing about Charlotte. What a sweet little girl. I am so glad that Mommy and Daddy are getting to have some hands on every day.

I do pray that she gets stronger day by day and soon will be breathing on her own.

Just catching up - so happy to hear that she's doing well! My cousin's little girl spent the first several months in the hospital after being waaaay too early and now she's a bright and healthy 2 y.o!

Sending good thoughts and my prayers your way!

Charlotte has grown so much since your first photos (I just found your blog through Sarah Lizzie's- Kim's). I hope she is well enough to be home by Thanksgiving.
