Update on Baby Hope

It's Ellie's mom.....filling in for a bit. I wanted to give you an update on Baby Hope again. We really need your prayers. Hope was taken off the vent on Sat. and she did quite well. She has never made it off the vent on her own for more than 40 minutes without needing to be put back on due to her struggle for air. Well, as of Monday around 2:30 pm...she was still doing well off the vent. It had almost been 48 hours off! What a fighter she is. Around 4:00 pm on Monday, she could not fight any longer. She needed to be put back on the vent for help with breathing. Tomorrow, Wed., Aug. 1, Hope's parents will meet with a team of doctors who have been working with Hope during this battle. They will look at Hope's well being and decide where to go from here. Originally, Hope's parents said that this would be the final time to allow her to be put back on the vent. I don't know if this still stands or not. This family has a lot on their plates right now...and not to mention, their older son turns 3 this Friday. I just pray that you will help me pray for them, and for Hope. I don't quite know what to pray for, to be honest. Just for wisdom from the doctors, an open heart for the family, and peace for Hope. I will update you when I know more...and again, thank you and God bless......

Hello, and welcome to my page! I am so glad you are here. I am going to try and show you the average life of a 5 year old from my perspective. Mommy and Daddy will help me along the way if I get stuck.
