Madison is growing well. She weighed in yesterday at 7lb 11oz. She's eating plenty and is allowed to eat on demand, which means I can try and nurse whenever she's seems hungry. (yay!) It's been a bit of a struggle to get her to latch the last couple of days, but she did nurse for 15-20 minutes this afternoon. (phew!) I was getting a bit stressed about that.

So, she had a few tests yesterday. Kidney ultrasound, and VCUG (voiding cystourethrogram). She showed some reflux on one side. She seems to be emptying the bladder just fine, but we haven't gotten a final report and recommendation from the urologist yet. She also had an ultrasound of the brain again today because her head circumference is up 1cm. A few more things to pray about.

I'm thankful she is so healthy, and doing very well. A bit scared and anxious about the findings today and yesterday. I did get some great pictures I will try and get posted here. Still working on that.

Seth and Ethan have been here the past few days, and they are loving her so much! She is really a beautiful and sweet little thing. She was awake and looking around quite a bit today as well. I can't wait to bring her home so I can be there for each moment.

Thank you all for your prayers!


  1. Oh I love the video! She's just so beautiful I just want to kiss that round little face! So glad she's doing well with nursing and is now able to nurse on demand! I'll continue to pray for her on all health fronts!

  2. So glad to hear all is going well and will pray for your concerns. God has provided so far and he will continue to do so. Thanks for keeping us all updated. You know you and your family are very special to a lot of people and we'd all be going crazy not knowing what was going on. Stay strong. You are doing great.
    Miss You!

  3. Oh, it just blesses me so much to hear this news!

    The videos are so sweet! What a godly and loving family.

    The nursing will work itself out, you are a pro. Adriel had some trouble getting the hang and I think she was about 2 months old, believe it or not, when I felt she finally knew what she was doing.

    Love you,


Madison Walking 22 1//2 months old! Happy Thanksgiving!!
