Hope Has Arrived


I want to thank each and every one of you who have kept us in your thoughts and prayers. They have all paid off and last night “Hope”, our new little granddaughter arrived. We are all so very happy and grateful that all went well.  Hope weighed in at 4 lbs. 4oz. She is in the NICU as she was born at 34 wks. and could be there for 2 or 3 wks. depending on how she progresses. She is on oxygen to keep her oxygen levels up, and they are tube feeding her at the moment, until she is stronger and able to suck. She also has fluid in her lungs and there is a procedure they use to help dry out her tiny little lungs. She has got off to a rough start but is in good hands. She is in God’s Hands.

Please keep Hope, mom and dad in your prayers. It hasn’t been easy for them, or the family. We are all so very thankful for her safe arrival, and will be so glad when she can come home to her family.
Thank you all so very much for your continued prayers.

    Im off the cut my grass and plant flowers agian today. So much to do at this time of year and its hard to get around to everyone.

  5. Congratulations! So glad she has arrived!
    When our son Ben was born at 32 weeks, they put a sign on his isolete that said, "Minimum stimulation"...the least bit of noise or handling would cause him all sorts of problems... It scared me, but then we turned the warning into a nickname "Benjaminimum"...and pretty soon he was home in his cozy real bed. Praying that for Hope too!

  16. Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers. I am very pleased to announce that Baby Hope has been transferred from the NICU to our local maternity hospital and is doing well, but not ready to come home quite yet. God has given us "Hope" and is taking good care of her, in the palm of His hand. :)

    Friendship is very important, thank you for being a good friend.

    Blessings and peace for the week ahead, take care,

    Love and Hugs - Nita
