In terms of the second infection, they are still not exactly sure what to make of it. There is a hard inflamed area on her neck, that has remained unchanged for the past several days with antibiotics. They are not sure if it is a gland issue or an abscess, etc. A surgeon is going to come in and take a look tonight. Hopefully, it can just be drained, and will not prove to be a major problem...
From here, we kindof start from the beginning again. After 10 days of antibiotics and holding feeds, we will slowing start re-feeding again and take it one feeding at a time, one poop at a time, one day at a time, and hopefully she will be able to take off and come home so that her momma and daddy can have her all to themselves- no needles/tubes/wires allowed!!
Meanwhile, we do have another child...she's big stuff; wearing big girl clothes, in an open crib, taking bottles, and weighs 4 1/2lbs.
Please join us in thanking God that Evangeline has crossed this hurdle and protected Audrey! Thank you so much for your prayers, I truly believe you all carried us through this. I have prayed that God would bless each of you.
Thank you for loving us, especially all of the people following our story that we don't know-we're so touched by you! We still have a long road ahead with Evangeline, but must rejoice when we're able. Please continue to pray for us as you think of it. Much love to you! xo.
