18lbs. 6oz.

We went and saw the surgeon today because Mya's granulation tissue grew back again! Despite 5 different treatments! The surgeon decided to prescribe her an ointment and see if that helps. (Since it grew back after 5 times of burning it off, she has no reason to think it won't just grow back again!)

She weighed 18lbs. 6 oz.!! I love her surgeon at Riley.....she asking us and seems more concerned than her doctor down there!! I can't wait until we can get into Cincinnati! I am a control freak and this situation is totally out of my hands....and that of course doesn't settle well with me!!

We have been doing something different with her last night bottle (which is usually when she would throw up). I give her 1 ounce over 15 minutes, wait 30 minutes, give another ounce over 15 minutes, wait 30 minutes, and repeat until she gets her 4 ounces. So has been working! Although it does not help Matt and I's is helping Mya!

I sometimes wonder if she will ever eat and drink enough orally to not have a feeding tube. She can barely handle taking 4 ounces of formula over an will she ever drink it from a cup in 15 minutes!

She is truly a beautiful baby and I don't know where I would be without her! I can't believe we are rapidly approaching her 1st Birthday!! I want her Birthday to be a day of celebration because we do have so much to be thankful for!

  1. Stopping by to see how Mya's doing. I sure do agree that she is a beautiful baby- and I know one day all her issues will be fixed. Hang in there and take it one day at a time. I know she has a special little guardian angel that keeps watch over her. ;)
