Evelyn has come off of her CPAP and has transitioned to the nasal cannula. It is so wonderful to be able to see her face! The pictures below are not the best of her, but you can get a better idea of what she looks like.
You want to do what? Can't you people just leave me alone?
I am so ready for bed!
Jessica did very well for about 36 hours without any respiratory assistance. But after that, she started having trouble keeping her oxygen sats up, so they decided to put the nasal cannula back on. It's very common for preemies to go back and forth a couple of times before getting rid of the cannula completely. If she continues to do well, we should be able to try her without the cannula again in a couple of days.
Today's visit had a very special surprise. Mommy was able to hold both girls at the same time! We wondered if the girls would remember if they had a twin and were curious how they would react to each other. Once both girls were on Mom's chest, they started wriggling a little bit. They scooted around until their shoulders and hips were touching and then settled down and went to sleep! Later on they woke up, wriggled around some more and ended up holding hands for a little bit. Amazing! Aren't they precious together? Jessica is on the left and Evelyn is on the right.
