So In Love


Makaila - The biggest news for her is that she is off the vent and now on CPAP. She is breathing 21% oxygen. She is doing good and we are so proud of her. They increased her feedings to 21 ccs of food and are also fortifying it to add more calories. It is amazing how much she looks more and more like her Daddy and Hannah.

Hannah - She is still doing good on her nasal cannula and they are possibly removing it today. She is now getting 9 ccs of food and is doing well with it. Josh got to hold her yesterday. She tried to pull out her nasal cannula and he had to distract her so she didn't. She had a head ultra sound yesterday to check for brain bleeds.

Samantha - Poor little Samantha had an IV go bad (real bad). Her right arm has significant swelling and bruising. The doctor warned us that it was so bad that she may have a permanent scar from it. Only time will tell. The sad thing is that she is doing so good with her feedings that they are probably removing all IV's today. If only her veins could hold up one more day. She is now getting 15 ccs of food. She also had a head ultrasound yesterday.

Sandra - Her lab results came back negative for infection in her stomach. They decided to continue with the 7 day antibiotics just in case. She was started on 2 ccs of food and is handling it well. She to had a head ultrasound.

I was able to hold Sandra and Samantha at the same time yesterday. It was so much fun. Seeing 2 sit on me just amazes me how four fit inside. They were very comfortable laying together. I want to say they cuddled but I just think Samantha was taking up Sandra's space. Josh and I are so truly in love with these precious girls. We are so proud to constantly hear how well they are doing.
