(I see my sister has been posting information for us on her blog. How nice!)
Esmé is doing quite well today. I was able to attempt nursing her. Yesterday afternoon the doctor was quite concerned because her breathing had become very labored throughout the day. They put her on an antibiotic through IV and are doing a blood culture to make sure there is no infection. So far the blood culture is not 'growing' anything so that is a good sign. The pediatrician this morning could barely hear the heart murmur which means it is improving. Esmé is beginning to be weaned off of the oxygen. Her condition changes quite rapidly. For example, yesterday I was supposed to be able to try nursing but then within hours we were not even allowed to hold her because of her breathing. Then in the morning the report was great. Please continue to remember us in prayer-it is so comforting to know that we are being prayed for!!!...especially when we leave her for the night.
Day 1

Day 2- Sisters get to see her all decked out in hospital gowns.

Keeping a close eye on the nurse.

Day 3-showing some temper...she is quite feisty and the night nurses are generally not impressed with her from about 11:00-3:00. This also corresponds with the time of her activity in utero! Hopefully this pattern changes by the time she comes home. :0)

He will feed His flock like a shepherd; He will gather the lambs with His arm, and carry them in His bosom. Isaiah 40:11a This verse is so comforting when Esmé is left for the night. We know that God is with her and carrying her in 'His bosom' like a gentle shepherd.
In the multitude of my anxieties within me, Your comforts delight my soul! Psalm 94:19
