Stat update

Just wanted to check in and let you guys know that Becca is still doing great!  She's up to 1 pound, 4 ounces (WOW!) and is getting 4.4 cc's of milk every 3 hours - meaning that she's eating almost 1.5 ounces every day!  She's tolerating the feedings well, so they keep bumping her up.  Now she just needs to poop on her own again!  (It always comes back to poop, doesn't it?)  So we're hanging in there - but right now I'm going to sleep!  Thanks for all your support!

    Nancy, love the pictures--she's just a doll! I remember Benjamin having a PICC line in his little head too--scary at first, but its amazing what you get used to in the hospital, isn't it?! We are praying for Rebecca and you all. Her strong will is serving her well--I'm sure she comes by it honestly! :-) She's lucky to have two such amazing parents! Jennifer

  7. I'm pretty sure this is setting my dear sweet niece to be like her aunt and join the peace corps, because life there also centres around poop. I'm pretty sure it's a sign she'll be like me!! Love you all.

  8. well Everybody poops. Becca's just still figuring that out...I guess she hasn't had time to be as full of it as the rest of us. I'm sure she'll catch up soon. Much love and many prayers sent your way.

  9. Amazing! So glad she is doing so well. We are so proud! :) Both of our churches are still praying for you. And the other girls are right ... poop is still the central topic of my life ... that, and then sermon prep :) Much love to you, John, and Becca! (Oh, and the big sibs too)

    Love and prayers, Erin, Matt, Miles, and Buddy

  11. Congrats on the weight gain Becca! I was just thinking about poop but mostly because Ellie, our daughter just pooped and needed to be changed. How fitting is that....Ellie is trying to help Becca out! Much love to you all. The dress is adorable!
