Home stretch

Well, we made it. This is the week we’ve been waiting 10 weeks for! Harper is expected to come home for the first time on Wednesday or Thursday. She has remained tube-free and is now able to fully feed by bottle on her own schedule. She is a true testament to God’s healing power- her doctor told us this week that “she must have an angel sitting on her shoulder” and that the progress she’s made in the past week is “truly miraculous.”

Harper has an MRI tomorrow, and then we prepare for discharge. She has to gain some weight to prove that she can keep growing without tubes, but they put her on the maximum 27-calorie formula today so that shouldn’t be an issue. Aside from that we just have to get her immunizations done, get her home therapies set up, and make sure all of our appointments with the clinics here and at Duke are made.

Thanks for praying us home!
