I'm sorry I'm always the one blogging but Megan never really gets any time. Well, we know that God works all things out for good but we saw that first hand this past week. Karissa had to go to formula on Wednesday and since then she has done nothing but gain weight. Last Tuesday night she weighed 7 lbs, 10 1/2 oz and last night (Monday) she weighed 8 lbs 10 1/2 oz. 1 lb in less than a week. Megan's milk has started to come back but Karissa still has to have a bottle of formula after nursing so I don't know how much the nursing is doing for her. As long as she is getting something I guess it's better than nothing. So far she hasn't seemed to have any problems with the formula thankfully. She goes to AI DuPont Children's Hospital on Friday to have tests done to make sure she has recovered from the infection and that nothing else is wrong. Thank you all for your prayers and words of encouragement.

Yeah! I'm so glad to hear the good news about her weight! I can't wait to see her (or at least pictures).

We'll keep praying that God will provide the resources for the formula. That is definitely a bummer to have to change plans like that, but like you said, God has a way of working things out for the good.

I just got back from NYC - it was great! Like I told you before, we stayed at the Westin in Jersey City (it is new, that is why it is now showing up on Hotwire and did not before). The view was not as good as the Hyatt because it is a few blocks from the water, but the accommodations were nice and it was only a block from the Pavonia/Newport PATH station. So, just wanted to give you a heads up if you go again and use Hotwire.
