Elisabeth: 1.1+1.1 = 2.2 = PARTY!!

Elisabeth was brought to us on October 14, I made the picture with the marker in her hand, just to show how small she was. Today I made again a picture, again with the marker in her hand, you can see what a difference between those two pictures, that difference is 1.1 kg, Elisabeth doubled her weight in 4 weeks time!

When you see the picture at the left you see how small she was, just 1.1 kg. She has been in our incubator until 2 days ago, when another premature baby was brought.

We still feed her by NG tube, but we give her now more the bottle as well, she has now energy to drink, and she also has now energy to cry!!!
We celebrated today her doubled weight with our Amecet family, we prayed for her, thanking God for her life and of course there was a soda, thanking the staff for caring so well for her!

We all toast on LIFE!!


  1. Wonderful 1,1 Kg and 1,1 Kg is 2,2 Kg an that on the 10th birthday from Amecet.
    Have a wonderful day. We pray for all of you.
    Jaap and Martell
