Happy Sunday!

A little cuddle with Daddy
Well, I thought that I would have more definite info to share with you today...but I will update you on what I do know.

I do know that Victoria had two clear tests...both Thursday and Friday.  I have not received the results from Saturday's test yet.  We are so thankful for these days without any bacteria in the CSF.

Victoria had a really good day yesterday...and last night she slept really well.  I even got an excellent rest last night which I am really thankful for.  We are hoping to start trying to bottle feed her in the next couple of days, now that she is over all feeling better. She has been getting her nutrition from the nj tube for the last little while, so it will be essential for her to transition back to getting her nutrition on her own.  After they took off her breathing tube earlier in the week, she was agitated, and they decided to give her  hi flow oxygen (with a little tube that blows into her nose).  As the week has gone on, and her agitation has gotten less and less, they realized she was really not needing the hi though she does still have have the little thing on her face it is no longer on high flow.  (update...Victoria has not been using the oxygen at all since mid morning...and her oxygen levels have remained good and stable)   (feeding update...victoria got 3mls of milk with a dropper this morning and tolerated it's been awhile since she had anything in her stomach...and longer since she has had to work to eat...about 1/2 hour ago she got to try the bottle a little, but was a bit gaggy with got a little more with the dropper.  she did do a little bit of sucking, she has a start.)

Well...that is the latest, and as to day is Sunday, I imagine they won't be bringing me too many results today.
 I was so blessed this week with company!  First, my Aunt Pauline, and Uncle Dave came to visit...then Michelle, Jim and their Esther, then my dear husband. The day after Bruce left, my cousin Steve's wife, Jenny came and gave me a little crochet lesson, while we had a nice leisurely chat, then my Uncle Jim stopped in for a visit and yesterday, my cousin Mary stopped in for a while!  Thank-you all so much!  Thanks to those who sent cards, and comments, also. You have all been more of an encouragement than you realize, and I am truly thankful.   

"Bless the LORD, O my soul:  and all that is within me, bless His holy name!  Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits...the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear Him, and his righteousness unto children's children." Psalm 103:1,2,17
