    Well our grandaughter is getting better. She was born on July 20 and weighed only 3.3 lbs. Dang I've caught a lot of fish bigger than she is:eek:oooh:

    They kept her on a vent with oxygen to make sure she didn't tire out breathing but they are weening her off of that already slowly. She is down to 21% air which is the equivalent to room air but she is still getting it thru tubes.

    She weighed 3.12 lbs today. After she was born she dropped a little weight down to 3 lbs even and then has been climbing ever since.

    Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers.

    Okay-this is the former Emergency Medical Technician (EMT, "Ambulance Driver") in me talking. She's got a good birth weight for her age, so that's to her advantage.

    Now this is me talking-I do believe in prayer and she's still in mine.
