God continues to be so kind to us and to our daughter Tovia. Tovia is now completely off all IVs and is at ‘full-feeds’ of mom’s milk. Another wonderful development was that she was transferred this last Friday back to the hospital she was born in, a closer, smaller hospital, allowing us to visit Tovia more frequently and more conveniently. This is a great vote of confidence from the doctors, indicating that they think she is on the way to coming home.
I promise, promise, promise that I will have a new picture up very soon, but I did want to thank you for your many prayers. God has heard and answered them. Tovia is on track to be able to come home in 2-3 weeks. She needs to be able to take all her feedings by bottle/nursing, and this is something that preemie babies have to work up to. It is a thoroughly exhausting workout for a 3 pound baby to suck down a few ounces of milk, so she’s working up to it. Pray that she grows in strength and size and stamina. Lord willing, she will be home soon.
Glory to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit!
