Happy New Year! What a great year 2010 will be. We hope and pray that our girls have a much better year in 2010 than 2009. They both seem to have started the year off really well. This New Years day we were able to spend good quality time with the two most important girls in our lives, little Rachel and Haley.
Rachel is still cruising along on her nasal cannula. She is now on day 4 of her nasal cannula and she seems to be tolerating it very well. She seems to like the nasal cannula so much better than the cpap. Rachel definitely is a girl who will never give up on anything. She will fight to the bitter end. We love to be around her and just feel her special spirit.
Our little Haley also had a great day for her first new years. Thomas was able to hold her for a good amount of time today while I was working. He loved spending a little daddy daughter time with Haley. Haley has a new physician/attending this month. It's Dr Jen Arnold from TLC the little couple. She is such a neat lady. She is very nice and we are grateful for the care she is giving Haley. Tonight Haley drank from the bottle. It was the first time Thomas had seen her eat from a bottle. It was neat to see how excited Thomas got watching Haley take her bottle. He has waited a long time to see that. We are also excited that Haley has finally made it to 7 pounds!!! She is growing. Haley is such a special little girl. She has a way of melting our hearts when we are around her. She has been through so much, and yet never gives up. We are so grateful to the Lord for sparing her life ad allowing her to remain with us on this earth. We are so eternally grateful that Both our little miracles are permitted to remain with us here on earth. We love and cherish both Rachel and Haley more than words can describe.
