Good morning everyone! We have a specific prayer request this morning… I met with Harper’s team this morning and we discussed her feeding issues. They have decided that they still want to work on her stomach stretching, but at a slower rate. So right now they are transitioning her back to feeding for three hours and then off for one hour, but they are doing it at a smaller volume than she has been on.
Here’s the request- if she can tolerate this pattern for the next 12-24 hours, they will have a more definitive plan in place for treating her feeding intolerance. That means she could be sent to New Hanover! If she holds down her milk until tomorrow her doctor said she could be ready to transfer as early as this weekend. Now, that also depends on if New Hanover has space for her, and he said they may not accept a case as complex as hers on a weekend. He also said it does not rule out the possibility of having to return after some time for a g-tube surgery depending on how well she learns to oral feed.
Right now we are fervently praying that she will hold down her milk over the next 24 hours, and that New Hanover will have space and welcome her with open arms. We appreciate all of you who will join us in these specific prayers today!
