Baby Harper- update

1.17.11 Thanks again for your thoughts & prayers. I was already going to travel over and hope for just a glimpse through a crack at lil Miss Harper. Well, y'all, as I was driving, my mom called and said my brother called her and said they gave them a tiny tiny room to sit and visit with her today. As long as we weren't sick to COME ON. Needless to say, I speed up a little to get there. I got to sit, hold & feed this precious little girl. She is slowly getting better. Everything is getting better. Slowly, but better. They say if she can gain some weight,, she can go home. Hopefully before the end of the week. Praise God!! Also, lungs are better as well as her limbs. What a miracle!! Thank you all so much for your continued prayers and well wishes-xo Here is Harper today.


1.16.11 Thanks for your continued prayers and thoughts. Your sweet emails melt my heart. I haven't heard anything this morning, as it's still early. Last word last night was that Harper had lost another 3 oz. :( NOW they are saying that they don't think she was getting adequate
amount of milk & that may have caused her weight loss. She is supplementing with formula/breast milk. The stiffness in her legs/arms, as of now, they are saying could be a result of how she was in the womb. (praise God if that's all it is) And as far as the fluid, there has been no change. Once again, thank you friends. I am keeping faith that He has a great big plan for this little lady! xo

1.15.11 Thank you all so much for your thoughts, prayers & emails. Your thoughtful means so much!! As of last night, there had been no dramatic changes. Her fever had gone down, Praise God. Now they just wait...... ugh....
We were on our way there (they are a good hr away) when I spoke to my little bother. He informed me that no one could see her (makes perfect sense, what was I thinking? other than freaking out, obviously, I wasn't) The Dr's wanted my brother and his wife to leave. They are trying to get rid of whatever type of infection she has developed. {keeping all germs away}They said they didn't need Harper getting anymore attached to them as it would make her possibly more fussy/cranky when they were with her?? Anyway, they are the Dr's and know best BUT my SIL was a wreck having to leave her 2 day old baby. Bless her heart. I feel so bad for them all.They went back for a brief moment last night, to take milk. He promised me that as soon as he went back this AM, he would call me. So, I sit and wait......

this was a few hrs after she was born....
her big sister was giving her a new-do:)
she had to put on her new "Im a Big Sister t-shirt, BUT
couldn't part with her chinchilla vest :)

My brother & wife had a baby on Wednesday. I got the call earlier today that she become ill. She is running fever, limbs very rigid, lost 11oz. They said she also swallowed alot of amnionic fluid. They have trie several times to remove it but her throat is getting raw. They are hoping she doesn't develop pneumonia.
PLEASE KEEP LITTLE HARPER IN YOUR PRAYERS. THANK YOU. XO

  1. Oh my gosh! Where is your brother? Someone I know just mentioned a baby named Harper, but no problems.... just odd that it's the same name if it's not the same baby.
