Hampton Update

I wish I could say Hampton was off, but it just hasn't happened yet. We just got back from seeing her in the NICU and it is so hard to leave her there. Mothers, I am sure you understand this, but leaving her after we've spent the last 9 months together is simply heart wrenching. I want to be stronger than I am and I leave no room for her just healing and getting better, but I wish with all of my being she and I could just cuddle, feed and cuddle some more.

I am going to use the blog tonight to make my prayers known to the Good Lord. First of all I just want to thank him for my amazing family and all he has done to heal Ford and Hayden and will do for my sweet little Hampton. I just pray that her recovery starts kicking into high gear and the fluid starts lifting from her lungs and she starts breathing like the doctors would like her to do. I pray that I get to hold her soon and tell her how proud I am of her for working so hard to get better. Lord knows, I never thought I would have to endure another child in the NICU, but I pray God gives me the strength be patient while Hampton is healed. I also pray for all of you and whatever you're going through tonight, because without the support of my amazing friends and family.... I would be mush, pure mush!

Hampton is beautiful, so beautiful! She has progressed to taking some feedings today and her xray looked better.
Thanks for your support,
Dana, Trey, Ford, Hayden and Hampton

Hi Dana!!!
I read the last couple of posts about your so-sweet baby girl Hampton. I too, am praying for her speedy recovery! I wish I could get up to the 3rd floor to see you and Trey! But I'm not feeling all that well and I know the last thing you want to deal with is a pesky cold! So please accept my hellos, congrats, and prayers!

Shayna,
How amazing to hear from you... I am so thankful for your prayers and also wish I could see you, but appreciate you being cold conscientious!

Ran into Glo the other day and she said you had another baby... congratulations. The boys are almost 2 (in January) and are just amazing... I have faith Hampton will be just as strong!
Sincerely,
Dana
