*update 9/20* Please pray for my baby niece

My SIL and my niece need your positive thoughts and prayers please.

After losing her twin on June 10th, my niece was born early (at 26weeks) via emergency c-section on June 22 weighing in at a tiny 1lb 6oz. She is doing fairly well right now. She's currently off the oxygen (but day-to-day) and started on a feeding tube on the 24th.

Please pray for our family while grieving the loss of one child, and celebrating the birth of another and hoping that she'll be ok.

*update* 6/29
Her brain scan showed no bleeding. Her echo results shows a smaller murmur Which they're not going to treat bc they believe it's small enough to close on it's own. Back on some oxygen but doing ok. The doctor also said that she is doing VERY well for her age! Now she needs to grow and get stronger so she can come home!!!

**update 7/2**
Got her PICC line in woth no complications. She's back on feedings and we are hoping she'll put on some weight. Mama got to hold her this morning! Such a blessing Thanks for the prayers and thoughts...keep them coming! She is a fighter!!

***update 7/7***
It's been a rough few days "typical preemie stuff" according to the docs, but very scary for us

****update 7/15****
She is now 1lb 12.9oz., and is 3 weeks old (would be 29wks) Still lots of ups and downs...but she's such a fighter!

*****Update 9/20*****
First, sorry it's been so long. we have just been watching and feeding and waiting. She's growing and doing so much better now!
She's up to 4lbs now!! Off the vent and on CPAP, AND growing out of preemie clothes
Thank you for all the prayers so far and please continue to pray that she keeps on this path and gets to come home soon!

Thank you so much mamas Keep it up.
She's still fighting but she has a hole in her heart and they are hoping it'll close up and not require surgery.
