Baby Esther is a fighter..

Baby Esther is a fighter!!! She looks at you with those beautiful black eyes on a way of:" I keep an eye on you, I want to know what is going on!"  She had a good night, we fed her via the NG tube every two hours and every 3rd feeding we use the bottle. She has problems to control her body temperature, so we play with blanket on, and off.
We took her and the results of yesterday tests to the pediatrician. She had a good look at her and was quite positive. She gets some medication and we have to do the feeding and keeping her warm. There is a big chance that the small hole in her heart will close when she gets stronger and bigger. Thank you for your reactions via FB, it is very encouraging!
I also let Sabine meet her little sister! Sabine was almost as malnourished as Esther, Sabine has also a small hole in her heart. And look at her now!! Sabine is 6 weeks older than Esther (who is now 6 weeks old). We are not there yet, Esther has still a way to go, but we do have hope that she will pick up. Thank you for your prayers, please continue............
