9/21/09 - Update

We received a call at 11 pm last night that poor little Allie had to go back on the ventilator. We just want to cry. This is the 4th time that little girl has been intubated. We just wish she were strong enough to stay off. We were so excited that this was the longest she has lasted without the vent. They removed it at 11 am on Friday. Her airways are too inflamed which is causing her to work very hard to breath and causing the squeaky noise. Please pray for her airways specifically to heal very quickly. Putting the tube back in last night does not help the airway situation but it does give her a little break from working so hard.

Norah and Olivia were doing well yesterday. I enjoyed about 5 hrs. with my girls yesterday excluding Allie because we were letting her rest all day hoping that would keep her calm enough to stay off the vent. Norah and Olivia are now big enough to dress so we are taking some preemie jammies up to them tonight. Exciting! They also weighed the same yesterday at 3 lbs. 6 oz. Oh...what an experience. I don't think Nick and I will ever forget these days.
