Healthy Bumbo Baby!
First of all let me apoligize to you all for my writing skills, I know this blog entry won't be near as enjoyable to read as Mike's, but hopefully it'll get the point across and Eden's pictures will make up for the rest.
Eden had to have more blood drawn today to monitor her platlet levels. We are very proud of her, as she didn't scream with fear when we walked into the hospital. This test was very quick, a prick of the finger and a few squeezes (and screams) and it was over. We then had to wait for an hour or so to get the results... 760,000 (up from 80,000 last Thursday)! We are all very excited. They also said that her white cell count is in the normal range at last. We'll hang in there for another week when we check the levels again.
Eden also had her weight checked, and we are happy to report that the hospital stay didn't slow her down- she's up to 16 lbs 7 oz. She demonstrated her weight gain to us when we bought her a new chair (the Bumbo) and found that we have to push her legs in to make them fit; she makes us proud!
