"Last week doctors found an infection in Esther's stomach which they were very concerned about. However she has made positive steps forward and while not completely better is moving in the right direction.
Because she has been poorly this has slowed down progress with regards to growth and her breathing. While she has gained small amounts of weight, which is good, she is still very small. She is also still dependant on the ventilation.
For the time being they are letting her stabilise and hoping to get her back on small amounts of milk soon. They also mentioned today about talking to us at the end of the week about Esther having an operation to have her duct closed.
Please pray for ...
- Victory over current infection and protection against future infections. - For the closing of the duct between heart and lungs. - Protection and full development of her lungs and that she'd come off the ventilation. - please also pray for the baby next to Esther (Eli), who following an infection was given hours to live but has stabilised and had a successful operation. Pray for full recovery!
