“But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God's unfailing love for ever and ever”. Psalm 52:8


Appointments, trips and fun

Last weeks have been very busy, full of appointments and also with some challenges and many victories.

The good news is that we found out an excellent public institution where Vitoria will have all necessary therapies. She is being evaluated for a team of doctors and therapists and I believe she will start therapies next month.

Up to now she´s doing only physiotherapy twice a week and she is having many progresses in her physical development. She is sustaining much more her head and trunk, what is a very important step in neurological development. She is also hearing much better, paying more attention to our voice when we talk to her.

The bad news is that we found out in a routine exam that she is with an urinary infection again :-( She is very well and apparently didn´t present any symptom, but we´ll need to pay more attention because it is the second urinary infection she has in half a year, so we´ll need to make more exams to investigate its cause.

Last days we received a visit from Carla, nurse who took care of Vitoria at NICU.
Carla was the first person who took care of Vitoria when she was born, in her first moments of life (when doctors expected she would live only a few hours). She always took care of Victoria with much love and became a great friend of us.

she loved this swing

I´d like to share some beautiful photos we took in Easter holiday last month. We went on a farm and we spent pleasant moments very close to nature with our beloved daughter. She was very attentive and we clearly saw that she noticed the great change in environment.
She loved and was relaxed but at the end of the day she was very tired!

After so many activities, she slept a nice nap lying on grass.
what's that up there?

what a different place!
