What A Day!!

Nick went in early this morning to find out that the girls had a good night. Which is always good news. He was there for the 9am feeding and had a hard time leaving because Ella kept dropping her oxygen sats. I show up around 10am and spent about 1 hour watching my beautiful Ella's oxygen sats continuously drop into the high 30's low 40's and her poor little face turn very pale with a tint of blue. Talk about stressful!! Today she was very unpredictable, one minute she sats in the 90's and the next minute she drops into the 50's. She knows what she is doing... just look at that evil grin...
Needless to say she is still requiring oxygen. By the end of the day thankfully she was doing much better. This behavior is a little unusual for her, so we are praying it doesn't continue.

On a happier note, our other beautiful daughter, Ava was taken off oxygen today and tolerating it so far. She spent some good time in mommy and daddy's arms. Here is picture of Ava receiving a boogerectomy. This is a pretty regular occurrence where they use a high powered suction device to clean out the nasal passages and mouth... It's pretty much like hooking a Dyson up to your nose, and it usually works.
