Cannon - Off of CPAP and now on Nasal Canula.. you can see him much better now. Matt and I have both been able to hold him! I got to change his diaper and feed him through his tube! All in all, DOING GREAT!!!
Gunner - He is our biggest fighter!! He ended up being intubated two days after birth, but came back full speed ahead and is now even off CPAP and now on nasal canula only! He is doing great on his feeds and up to 10cc's every three hours! Go Gunman Go!! We got to see him naked while being weighed and his little booty, oh, oh, I could pinch it off!!!
Lauren - She is doing great!!! She is off CPAP also and is now only on Nasal Canula. She's having some difficulty with feeding and having residual, but is getting better!! She's got the biggest feet and hands of them all!!!
Avery - She is the only one left on CPAP, but is eating better than Lauren. She's up to 5cc's an hour, but her nurse doesn't want us to let her hear us brag on her! She said she is one of the feistiest babies she has ever had! She has been successful in ripping her CPAP out several times, taking her temperature probe off several times, etc. She ended up having to "seatbelt" her down three separate times! Go Avery Go!! Fight that nurse, show what you can do!!
All in all we are very amazed at our babies' progress! The next few days are still very critical and we ask that you continue to keep us in your prayers! Please also understand that this is a very trying time for our family, we are very busy and under amazing amounts of stress at the same time of being overly overly excited! We are not trying to ignore anyone or make you think we don't appreciate what you have done for us, we are just trying to focus on our family and spending as much time as we can with Hannah Noelle and then back and forth to see the babies. Visitors to the hospital are appreciated, but is often times very hard because we have to tour with you which takes time away from the limited time we already have to see the babies. Again, we are not trying to keep you away, but it is very difficult as I'm sure you can imagine!! When the babies gets home, please, please come as often as you want, as long as you're not afraid to change a poopy!!!! Also, the next two weeks I can't drive, so if you want to make a visit, can you pick me up???? Here is a picture of Hannah Noelle as she got to visit her brothers and sisters for the first time!!! Love to you all!!!!
