Tonight we were able to hold our little ones skin to skin or also known as kangaroo holding. I held Rachel and Thomas held Haley. We used a Zak's Sack to help hold them secure. A zak sack is a wrap that zips up. Rachel tolerated it well and just slept the whole time. Haley wasn't sure what to think of it, but we will continue to hold her skin to skin to get her used to it. Its such a wonderful feeling to be able to hold my babies so close. This is another exciting step forward. The doctor even said that they are going to start weaning the girls cpap settings in preparation to transition to nasal cannula. It will be so exciting to get them on the nasal cannula. They continue to make wonderful progress. We hope they continue in this direction. We love our girls so very much and are so proud of them.
An update on Haley's eyes. Dr. Coats checked her eyes this morning to see how things were going. He said there was a little less haziness and it looks like her eyes are slowly improving. He will check her again on Tuesday (11/10).
