Nyla update... she is two weeks old today!

Hi, as of last night Nyla was up to 7lbs, 8ozs. Her breathing is still really heavy and she gets tired very quickly. As i mentioned in my last post, Nyla has been doing a little bit of bottle feeding. She was doing ok but lately she has been struggling with it. After about 10cc which is less than 1/2 an ounce she gets tired from trying to eat so they have to switch back to the feeding tube so she can get all of her nutrients. Because of all the marconium that she swallowed while in the womb her lungs were quite damaged. Now that the marconium is gone for the most part her lungs have to heal. They were inflamed and they are scared which is causing her to get so tired out from eating. She will be in the hospital for at least another week possibly longer. We all want to see Nyla come home as soon as possible but right now we need to make sure she gets stronger and can eat on her own with out getting tired. Please continue to pray for Nyla, Jen and Ben. Ben started work back up yesterday and Jen can't drive so Mom took her up yesterday and Ben met them after work. Thanks again for all the prayers.
