Keep praying for Glory

I am thankful. I am loving this little girl and I've never met her. I posted a while back to pray for Glory Ruth, the baby born prematurely to friends who a part of our church family and staff of our community center. In fact, Glory's Dad and I share office space (our doors open up to each other). Here is the good news report from the past couple weeks. Please continue praying.

Glory is doing very well. she had a blood test today and her red blood count went down from 20.9 to 20.1 over the last week. if it had dropped below 20 then she would have had to have a blood transfusion. she must have known that as she is really a tough fighter and she kept it just above the line. as it stands she will continue status quo until her next blood test in a week. thank you for all your prayers. she continues to gain weight and is currently 1345 grams (nearly 3 lbs)!!

Glory is growing daily. She is no longer in a covered isolette, her bed is now in “crib” mode and she is doing fine maintaining her body temperature. She is closing in on 3 and a half pounds and looks really beautiful. She may be looking at coming home in 3 or 4 weeks!!!!

Thank you all for your support and prayers.
