Spring Break for Grace and Mommy

Well it is spring break and we are staying home. Hope to get some rest! We were supposed to spend this week in the hospital for Grace's surgery for her malrotation in her intestines, but we have decided against the surgery since we got some new news about her kidneys...We found out last week that Grace's kidneys are only functioning at 25% and another hit would be a disaster. It was a hard and tearful week for Beau and I, as we know that at some point we may be faced with some very difficult decisions. For now Grace is stable and just needs to continue gaining weight. We enjoy everyday and take one day at a time, trying not to look too far ahead. Grace is 6 and a half months old and now weighs 14 lbs. 6 oz. Getting to be such a big girl! She is much happier and doesn't need so much attention from mom and dad. She enjoys laying on the floor kicking and looking around. She has gotten a lot better at riding in the car and even falls asleep now! Nights are still not too good. It takes a long time to get her to sleep, then when she wakes up, she may be up for 3 hours AHHHHHH. Hopefully this will get better soon! Hope to add some new pictures of the little lady soon!

  1. I am so sorry her kidneys are not functioning very well.
    Makily was the WORST sleeper EVER for the first year or so. She screamed 24/7 and I thought I would lose my mind. I really feel for you!
