Today our little girls have had a relatively good day. Haley is hanging strong still from her surgery nine days ago though the thing we would like her to do is POOP. She has not had a bowel movement since before her surgery. They say each baby is different, but it can take up to a week or even longer. Haley does have bowel sounds, just not great ones yet. She will get it going pretty soon, I know she will be fine. Haley is down on her ventilator settings again as well. She is moving in the right direction. The Doctors tell us to give her time and she will poop. Little Rachel is a spitfire, and loves to move around a lot. She has pulled her breathing tube out twice this past week. She really wants the tube out I guess. They had increased Rachel's feeds again today, and has tolerated it very well. Rachel also is on lower ventilator settings. She is strong. She's already lifting her head up when she lays on her tummy. Rachel and Haley are similar with regards to their lungs, and ventilator settings. We are so grateful for their progress. Everyday they progress the closer they are to going home.
