Becca's doing great and seems to have the pooping thing down now! She's 4 days away from being on full feeds (meaning all milk and no IV's), and she's gaining weight like a champ! Last night she was 1 pound, 7 ounces, and she's in a trend of gaining just under an ounce a day - wow! We also moved over to the Children's Hospital NICU (which is the same level of care, just a different location on the Vandy campus), which is awesome (and includes a private room), but more on the new digs later.
On an entirely less celebratory note, I'd like to ask you to pray for our friends the Berlin family. They are members of our church in Louisville, and their 2-year-old son, Henry (but better known as "Buddy"), died in an accident last night. I can't even begin to imagine what Mark, Tammy, and 4-year-old Greta are going through. You guys have proven to be a community of prayer, so please make sure to lift them up in this horrible time. As I've said before, we can't get through tough times without the support of our faith community, both far and near - so let's join together in supporting the Berlins. Henry's service is Friday. (You may recognize Tammy's name from the blog comments - she's a part of Becca fan club and a great encourager.)
