Today has been an exciting day!

The babies' team was all set to extubate everyone after rounds this morning, but Sassy got a little impatient and pulled her own tube out before it was time. (Have I mentioned yet that I FEAR the teenage years with that one?) Luckily their team is awesome and acted fast and got her hooked up to the CPAP before she crashed. She took to it like a champ and is doing AWESOME!!! The mask looks uncomfortable and she gets fussy every now and then but it's just going to take a few days for her to get used to her new setup. But her vitals have been stable and she is breathing. My baby is breathing!

Since Audrey's extubation was so, um, exciting, they wanted to be able to keep a good eye on her and decided to save Grayson's for tomorrow. He's ready though, he is so ready. He's been satting in the high 90s all day - on only 24% oxygen - he's letting us know he is ready.

I wish I had words more sufficient than thank you when it comes to your prayers. I don't think I could ever say it enough times to relay our gratitude.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. -Philippians 4:6-7



    I love how take charge Audrey is. You'll never have to worry about her being taken advantage of.

  2. So, a little laugh, I thought your post title was CRAP! and I'm like, "Why crap? It's a happy post." Duh, Laura.

    Anyway, this *is* exciting. Yay, babies!

  3. Me too Laura!!! I was so scared; I thought something went terribly wrong. Duh Kathy too!!! OOOOO C-Pap! lol LOL

  4. That's my girl!!!! I am so thrilled for all of you. This is a big milestone, one you have been anxiously awaiting. I am sure Grayson will do just as well. God is good. I love you all.

  5. Wow! Good for them. Us and our small group are praying for them !
