There is finally talk from the doctors for both girls about letting them come home. In fact, Haley is scheduled to come home tomorrow (2/17). She will be coming home on oxygen and medication to help control the pulmonary hypertension. She is tolerating her feeds well and is continuing to grow. She is an active little girl and likes to wiggle and move around a lot. During our visit with her today, she was so wiggly and then finally she fell asleep in my arms. She looked so peaceful. She didn't even wake up when I put her back in her crib. Haley is such a lovable little girl and just so darn cute.

Rachel was also a sleepy one today. When we visited with her she was wide awake, but after I held her she got so comfortable and fell asleep. It was hard to put her back in bed as we love to hold her. Rachel is doing well and has hit the 10 pound mark. Her doctors are thinking that she possibly could make it home at the very end of February or early March, what a day that will be for Thomas and I.

Both Rachel and Haley have been taken care of by so many wonderful doctors and Nurses. We will miss them dearly when the girls come home as we have come to know some of them so well. We will be forever grateful for their hard work and loving care.
