Eva had her first bath today and she rather liked it. Eva calmly lay in the water and enjoyed it being gently splashed over her. She wasn’t even bothered by the hair washing. Pauline, the nurse, did her bath in order that it was done quickly to reduce heat loss. It was very cute to watch her enjoying this comfortable experience.
Eva is keeping her temperature well without a hat, which is great news for our impending discharge. We have purchased another type of bottle today as yesterday’s bottle made her drink too quickly and have small vomits.
Grace and her mother Claire have moved into the ward tonight which is great. They may only be here for one night as Grace has progressed so well on her bottle feeding down on SCBU.
Andrew and I enjoyed going to Church this morning. The Queen’s Chaplain, George Kavoor spoke about the wicked people and how they get their way in the world. We put in a Praise Report to tell people about Eva’s imminent homecoming. Pastor Pete has organised for the church to shout us to dinner this evening to celebrate Eva’s journey.
It is with much excitement that we go to bed tonight with the thought of maybe going home tomorrow! Please keep Eva’s continued good health in your prayers.
