Ups and Downs

What a crazy couple of days. Rachel and I are headed to a baby shower for the Twinsler's that we are really looking forward to, so I need to keep this brief. Ella is doing pretty well. She is breathing room air, w/ some extra flow through her nasal canula. She has 3 more days of antibiotics, she is almost ready for an open air crib, and is taking her feeds well, and last night she hit 3 lbs!Ava has now become our little stinker. She has had an uncharacteristically rough couple days, and the doctors think that she may have a blood infection. They started her on antibiotics and are taking blood cultures from her daily (just like w/ Ella earlier this week). Overall they are both healthy, and the nurses keep telling us that this is just what preemies do, ups and downs.
Thanks for all your love and support!

  1. Glad things are getting better! It's good to hear good updates and I will be praying for Ava's blood infection. And yes, preemies do have ups and downs, Parker was the same way. It gets easier, I promise.
