We created this blog to help us document the story of Malia starting at 29 weeks in utero. There have been and continue to be struggles for Malia and for us. It is evident to us, as you will see, that the power of prayer is mighty and God does love us and hear our prayers. We welcome and invite you to follow along with us. Though lengthy, start from the bottom to get the entire story so far.

Feeding/growing week (May30th-June6th)

This week (May30th-June6th) was pretty much an eating/growing week for Malia.  There were days of good eating and days where she would maybe take 1 bottle feeding.  Not nearly enough progress to warrant thinking about going home.
To keep things a little exciting Malia did give Daddy a little scare while I was feeding her.  As I was feeding her she began to get sleepy (as she does with many feedings) and all in one moment it seemed like she fell into a deep sleep and her heart rate and oxygen level plummeted.  I sat her up a bit to try and stimulate her and she ejected what she had drank up to that point and immediately her vitals bounced back up.  Surely added another silver hair to my collection.
Malia did break the 7lbs. mark though and was even showing some of that good old baby fat.  Grandpa Tree got to hold Malia one last time on Saturday before leaving Sunday night.
