What a wonderful day! Rachel is officially off her cpap and on nasal cannula. We are so thrilled with the progress she has made the past few weeks. Thomas and I were both able to hold her this evening and feel of her absolute purity and her beautiful little spirit. She had her eyes open a lot more this evening than she has had. She just seemed more alert and more comfortable in general. She has done extremely well on her nasal cannula. In fact one of the nurses told us that she is doing much better on the nasal cannula than she did on the cpap. We are so excited about this huge step forward for Rachel.

Little Haley continues to plow forward as well. I was a little worried today about Haley because she has had a few more apneas than she has ever had. When she has these apneas her heart rate drops pretty low. I discussed with the neonatologist at Texas Children's this morning my concerns regarding this issue. My intuition says she has another infection. The Doctors decided to do some tests to rule things out. We should get some of the results in the morning. We hope and pray there isn't another infection going on.
