Over the Moon *UPDATED*

Just got back from our morning visit with Delilah and I am so happy. Our little angel is doing so good. The nurse told us that she checked her gag reflex this morning (which is done by sticking a finger down her throat...i know...doesn't sound like fun) and she showed signs of improvement. She actually started trying to push the finger out. She is such a smart little girl. The nurse also let us know that they are seeing improvement in her movements, especially her little arms. I am such a proud mommy! The doctor also came by to check on us and he let us know that she will probably be off the IV in the next day or two. SO EXCITING! If she keeps this up we should be able to try a bottle by this weekend. I will keep you all up to date. Thank you all for all the prayers and well wishes. Delilah is definitely one loved little girl!

I forgot to mention one big thing we found out this morning. Delilah has gained about 2 ounces!!!!! Woohoo!!!!


  1. BG and John-I am so happy to hear this good news. you are doing such a great job. I know that based on genetics alone this has to be one very tenacious girl!
    From the partners at my work, to my brother's church and our church (and many others I can't name) I know that you all have hundreds if not thousands of people praying for all of you.
    BG2-You just keep going and show those doctors how much one little girl can teach them! You are one awesome girl--your Nana and Mama aren't bad either. I love you today, tomorrow and always.
