The girls had a good day. We got the test results back on Rachel's test (ph probe) today. It does show she has reflux which we already knew, but her reflux is not that terrible. The GI doctor doesn't think she needs a fundo, but he does think she needs a g-tube. A g-tube will make it easier for her in the long run for feeds and when she does learn to take a bottle. Not sure when the g-tube will be placed yet. Rachel's feeding rate was increased today to help with her weight gain. Not much else going on with her besides the fact she is a pacifier addict. She is looking as cute as ever.

Haley is doing well. Today I learned how to place a nasogastric tube. With the help from the nurse I placed one in Haley. She wasn't happy about it, but once it was placed she was fine. Haley's feeds were advanced today as well. She is getting her feeds at a faster rate over 1 1/2 hours instead of 2 hours. Later she will get her feeds over 1 hour. Haley has been getting better at taking the bottle. She took 26cc this afternoon. She is slowly but surely getting the hang of it. Things are progressing to her coming home. Thomas and I are going to take a CPR class and have a car seat fitting at some time within the next couple of weeks. Haley is looking cute as well. She is finally starting to grow some hair on her head. It's still hard to see it in pictures, but I can finally see some hair on that little bald head of hers.
