Another good day

Yesterday Sara took a rest from the hospital and I visited Janneke with our oldest daughter, Emily. Janneke is doing quite well. She is breathing very well on her own and we hope to begin some oral feeds this week. We will also talk to the doctors this week and get the results from all of the different tests and observations that she had last week. Thanks again for all the prayers offered for our family.

Dear Sara and Ralph
I delivered a baby boy in the north last week... two months premature. It made me reflect on God's mercy that Janneke was delivered on time .. for amazing hospitals that have NICU's and doctors that have specialized training. I thank God for the milestones that Janneke is accomplishing.
Keeping you and your family in my prayers

Dear Sara and Ralph,
It has been wonderful to hear the updates on Janneke, she is so cute We have been praying for her everyday, and we will be joining you as Sick Kids residents tomorrow. Kyra has her surgery tomorrow at 11:30. We will be on 8c in Plastics. Maybe we can have a coffee or tea. ;) All the best in the days ahead. God bless,
Todd, Melinda, Kyra and Tyler Ridgers
