Quick Update

Olivia has been "home" with us since Saturday night. She is doing so good, eating like crazy and staying awake longer just taking it all in. Emily is still in the level II Nursery. (The hospital has become our "home" until she can come home with us.) She has been fed through a tube in her nose for every other feeding and by bottle on the other. The last thing we are waiting for is for her to have the strength to eat all her feeds on her own. Today is the big day, the doc has given us the go ahead to try her out on it. She needs to finish just over an ounce of milk every three hours. We are so excited!! If she can do it for 24 hours then we can take her home!! We can't wait to see what she does.... she has been gaining weight she is a grand total of 4lbs 6oz.

Loni...they are ADORABLE! Congrats on being to the testing portion. We are still just trying to get them both to eat twice a day let alone being able to eat on their own for an entire 24 hours!! :) Hopefully soon for us...but I am really praying for Olivia because she is seperated from her sis...You guys and your little ones are in our thoughts and prayers. :)
