A good way to lose weight

So Sharon has some kind of bacteria growing in her throat that isn't really supposed to be there, so she is in isolation until further notice. What does that mean for us? That means that we have to wear gloves, gowns & masks. I did get to hold her yesterday (which is when this picture was taken), though not today because she was getting a blood transfusion. All the stuff we have to wear makes it even hotter in the room, & makes us sweat a lot more. We haven't stayed very long lately because it is just so hot in the room & under the plastic gowns. She is still doing well, & weighs just under 2 pounds right now. She is being fed 2 cc of milk every three hours now & she is doing fairly well. The vein in her heart is still open & causing some problems with her oxygen saturation, but that's fairly normal. We have to wait until Monday to find out if this bacteria is something to worry about, since Infectious Disease Control apparently doesn't work on weekends. We are still positive & love seeing our little girl! Her eyes are opening more frequently & a bit wider, & she looks so sweet with them open! Thanks for your continued prayers!

Caitlin and Ammon and Little Shari, We love you. We know that you are going thru some very trying times right now, but the Lord is keeping you within his arms. You do look kinda cute with the mask and all, Caitlin. We feel that things are going to be okay. Our prayers as always, are with you. Love MomW

I'm sorry to hear that she's sick! I hope that by now there's a solution and that she's doing better. I was so suprised when I heard the news that Sharon had joined your family so early! Your family is in our prayers! I was reminded of an old friend of mine who had a baby come about 3 months early and she did a NICU Drive after seeing all the things the NICU needed. I know you have a lot going on, but I wondered if you'd check out her NICU Drive posts & see if any of the stuff she was doing for her NICU would be things that Sharon's NICU uses.
I would like to help & I know there are others too. You can email me your reply: jhdivis (at) gmail (dot) com. Let me know if I can help in any other way too!

I am praying for you and your tiny. Its not as early, but my brother was 11 weeks early when he was born. He is on his mission and there is a special place in all of our hearts for him. I hope that all is going well.

Good luck little baby
