Ava has decided that she is not ready to go home yet. Last night she decided to stop breathing and the nurse had to change the position she was sleeping in and stimulate her to get her oxygen sats back up. This bought her at least 5 more days in the NICU. Unfortunately she had another bad spell this afternoon. I was feeding her a bottle at noon today and she decided to choke, turn blue and her body became a wet noodle. Probably one of the scariest things I have ever experienced. She has been a champ with the bottle thus far, so we are not sure what is going on. We actually had to use oxygen to get her color to come back. I think this episode bought her 7 more days in the NICU. We are going to try another bottle now. Hopefully this one goes a little better...

Ava didn't take much of her 3:00 bottle either, and Ella only took 5 mls of her bottle, leading the nurse to think that both the girls are tired. It looks like they will rest tonight, and hopefully their parents can too.
