This morning Rachel made another big step in her progression - she was moved into an open crib. She was moved to the crib since she was getting too hot in the isolette. She is so little in her new big crib. Rachel also decided to take a step back in her progression. She had to be put back on the CPAP. After we arrived and was about to hold her she dropped her oxygen saturations. She didn't come back up so the doctor ordered to put her back on the CPAP. Rachel won't stay on the CPAP for long she will go back on the nasal cannula, but like the doctor said she just needs to get a bit bigger and stronger. She tried and just like the couple of times she tried the CPAP at first, she finally got it.

Haley continues to plug along, she has been down to room air at times (21%) and seems to be doing great that way. She loves her pacifier. I think it is her security blanket so to speak. She goes to town on it when she is angry or bothered. She has gained a little weight, she is now up to 5lbs 6oz. We continue to pray that her up coming eye exam on friday goes well and that they will not have to put her under anesthesia again just to check how the surgery worked. We continue to pray that her eye is doing better and that no more surgeries are necessary.
Haley Doing Her Thing!!
