The girls first Thanksgiving was good. It would have been nice for them to have been at home, but in time that will come and next year they will be home for Thanksgiving. Rachel unfortunately had to go back on the CPAP yesterday. She is just not strong enough to breath without the extra pressure the CPAP gives. She will have an ENT doctor come and check her out on Monday. Neonatologists are thinking maybe her airways are somewhat narrow that she isn't getting the air flow through when she is on just the nasal cannula. That is why they have called in an ear nose and throat doctor. In time we think as she grows, she will be able to go back on the nasal cannula. Rachel had some tests (Echo, EKG) done to check her heart and all the tests were good. She has gained weight and she is now 5 pounds 4 oz. Rachel is starting to catch up with Haley who is 5 pounds 7 oz. Haley didn't have her eye exam on Wednesday. The eye doctor said he will check her Sunday afternoon. Haley is doing well on the nasal cannula. So overall the girls are doing well. This Thanksgiving we are so very grateful for our precious daughters. They have been such a blessing in our life. We love and cherish our little Haley and Rachel. We give thanks to the Lord for these two beautiful little girls.
