Breathing alone....

Both babies are off of their CPAP and breathing completely on their own. Hayden has been doing so since today about 1:00 p.m., and Hank has been since midnight last night. They each have a nasal cannula that delivers supplemental oxygen to them. If they continue to do well through tonight and tomorrow, I may get to hold them tomorrow or Thursday. I'm so excited I can barely stand it! Hank is getting 11cc of milk, and they are adding calories to it to help him gain weight. Hayden is still on her continuous feedings and doing well. Hank didn't fuss one bit when his nurse changed his diaper tonight, but Hayden did, so they gave her a tiny little pacifier. She took about 3 or 4 sucks, which was enough to calm her down. They'll let me bring the pacifier home, so we can always remember how little they were (not that we'll ever forget!). Please keep our babies in your prayers, especially Hank's brain bleed and Hayden with her food tolerance. Thanks y'all!
