Laken is 2 months old!

I can't believe it! Our little angel is 2 months old already! She is still doing great! We went to the cardiologist last week and had an echo done and he said everything still looks the same. No changes are good! She weighed 7 lbs 6 oz but we also upped her formula to about 2 1/2 oz so I bet she will be over 8 lbs when we go back! She still LOVES to eat! She's such a good baby. She's sleeping well, 4-5 hours at a time during the night! We no longer have to wake her up every 3 hours to eat! Mallorie just loves her so much! She's such a great big sister and a HUGE helper!!

We're home!!

It's been awhile since I have updated, but Laken was discharged Monday July 5! Her heart hasn't changed, her sats are great, and they felt comfortable sending us home! She sees a cardiologist in Odessa once a week until he feels like he can stretch it. She's on all bottle feeds and LOVES to eat! She eats about 2 oz every 3 hours. Her strong little body is tolerating her bad heart, so now its just waiting and letting her grow to see how she tolerates it as she gets bigger! She's doing great at home and of course we are all loving it too! I think sister is spoiling her more than anyone!! We can't thank you all enough for all the prayers, we know thats what has got her to where she is now! Please continue to pray for Laken and we will keep updating as we see the cardiologist!
