Big Boy Clothes and No More Flow in the Nose

Today was a big day.  Anna Claire has been doing so well with her breathing that they took the oxygen tube out of her nose.  They were giving her 1 liter of “flow” to make it easier for her to breathe.  It is so nice to have all of that tape off her face.  They have also increased her continuous feed from .2 cc an hour to 1 cc an hour.  She gained 12 grams since yesterday.  Her bilirubin level is 5.4, so she is still under the lights.

Charlie is in big boy clothes now! (actually they are the smallest little clothes you have ever seen).  His bilirubin level is low enough to turn off the lights.  He is still on 1 liter of flow to make it easier for him to breathe.  His feeding was increased from .5 cc in 3 hours to 2 cc in 3 hours.

We are so excited about their progress.  They had brain scans yesterday and everything came back normal. 

I went to the doctor today and everything was great.  My incision is healing nicely and the doctor told me I can start driving next week!!  Yay!  Thanks to our friend Jeffrey, my grandparents, and Devin’s dad, we have worked out transportation for me this week – which I really appreciate!!  I have to go back in 4 weeks for another checkup. 

That’s about all for now.  Check back for more updates soon! 🙂
