I will add status updates from time to time. Please pray for this preemie fighting for her life!!
2/17/11-UPDATE: Baby Aara is doing good she is now 2lbs!! Keep praying everyone this tiny baby girl is a fighter. Her mom has been happy about getting to put her in clothes. We are delivering her mom a NICU gift bag today so, I look forward to meeting her. Thank you all----whoever is out there praying please keep going.
2/19-UPDATE: Please say extra prayers. I spoke with her mom tonight and she is not doing good at all. Aara has been having problems with her lungs. She is very critical please pray!
3/1-UPDATE: Aara is a fighter! She continues to have good days and bad days but is fighting hard thanks to a great NICU team and a very strong mom and dad. Please keep their miracle baby and entire family in your prayers as they continue on their journey.
3/3-UPDATE: I met with Aara's mom yesterday and she is continuing to grow and fight. She is now 2 lbs. 6 oz. She is still on the ventilator although yesterday was taken off of the high speed, which is a positive move. Her body continues to fight infection so her lungs are lagging in development. Please continue to pray for this little tiny miracle.
3/8-UPDATE: I received an email from Aara's mom today she is gaining weight and up to 2 lbs. 11 oz. They will be meeting with their Dr. soon for a status update possibly tomorrow. Lets keep praying for this little miracle baby!!
3/15-UPDATE: Aara is 3lbs!! She is growing like a champ and her mom has started Kangaroo Care. Prayers are working please keep them coming for this little girl and her family. I am attaching a new picture..
3/27-Aara is doing good. Growing more every day!! I am posting a new picture. Her eyes are smiling I love it! God is so powerful. Her mom did find out she has stage 2, zone 2 ROP so we need to pray for abnormal vessels to stop and eyes to heal.
4/4-Aara is 4lbs and on the CPAP again! Pray for her she is growing in all ways. Today was long for her as it was her first day to be switched over. She had to work a lot harder. God bless her!
4/17-Aara had another eye test for ROP and the tests came back negative. She has also been moved to the high speed Canulla and has been on it for 8 hrs now. This is such a great day for her! God is working so beautifully through this family and we pray he continues to make her stronger every day so we can celebrate her homecoming.
