Arrived Home with a bump in the road
We made it home safely tonight from the Big Easy. We had a good time visiting Thomas's parents and seeing some of the sights of New Orleans. We left New Orleans around 2 pm, and arrived to our home around 7 pm. Soon after we got home, we rushed to the hospital to see our little girls. It was so wonderful to see them. We really did miss them. We stayed a couple of hours this evening until we were booted out due to the routine shift change. Rachel and Haley are doing relatively well, haven't had too many changes over the past twenty four hours. They are both tolerating the breast milk feeds. They are getting 1.4 ml/hr continuously. Ashlyn is the one we are worried about. Since that episode yesterday, she had to be on 100% oxygen for most of the day today and her O2 saturation's were still 85 to 90. We like to see her in the mid 90's (92-96). She seemed to be doing a little better when we were there this evening. Her sats were getting more steady in the 90's. They are going to try to wean her O2 down very slowly. Ashlyn is also back on dopamine (medication to help increase her blood pressure). We are hopeful all will be well with her. This is just a bump in the road and we are praying she will get through this.
