Such alot for a little one to cope with, but I'm hoping that every day brings better news of Katie's health improving.

Thinking of you all as you wait.

Ongoing thoughts and prayers for little Katie and all her family. She is certainly having a hard beginning bless her, let's hope today sees an improvement for a special baby.

Thinking also of baby Esme and praying that she is making good progress.

BIG HUGS to both little girls families at so anxious a time.

Things much the same...Katie is stable and has had her eyes open a bit.
Still waiting for results of biopsies to find out the cause.
Had the genetics team today asking questions,particularly about the death of my grandsons identical twin who died at 4 months 25 years ago.(cot death)
I think they are being thorough and trying to eliminate all causes.
Still a waiting game...but she is obviously more comfortable and the steroids are helping.

Hope Esme and the one on martynsues post are also improving. <3 <3 <3
