Good Day for Parker!
Today was a QUITE the day! Parker was taken off the high flow cannula and put on low flow, 100% oxygen, needing only 1/8 liter. This is what babies go home on - 1/4 or 1/8 liter oxygen. What a thrill! As you can see in this poorly lit picture I took, Parker's feeding tube is in his nose. This is because he's starting to nipple feed! I tried breastfeeding today and had a little bit of success. Tomorrow he will be evaluated and probably started on a low flow bottle. The docs are also talking more seriously about his hernia surgery! They said he'd probably have surgery 5-7 days prior to going home...could this be a turning point? The thought of having him come home is just beyond belief!
Tyler...hum, same place, same cannula flow. We're hoping he'll take a hint from brother and get a move on! GOOD DAY TODAY!
Aunt Deannie came for a visit!
Here's Auntie Teresa with Tyler. Now how did Tyler end up getting his pic taken with BOTH aunties? Sly guy...ha ha!
