Day Two

We are on day two off the vent! Blair had a good night. She is still having to work some to breathe, but the doctor said that it's ok. I think she has done better overall off of the vent than he expected. She is still on oxygen, and her blood oxygen level has been good and stable, even when the nurses move her around, which is when it used to go down a good bit. The only change for today is that her feedings are being increased again.
When Brad and I got there this morning, one of the nurses was holding her. She is going to be rotten. They let me take her, and I got to hold her for a while.
Blair has already become quite a fan of her Sleep Sheep noise machine I took over there a couple of days ago. It really calms her. We may have just started a bad habit! One of the NICU nurses has a daughter that sleeps with one, and they have to take a noise machine everywhere they go! Blair also likes a pacifier. The nurses can hear her smacking on it in the next room! Maybe we'll get to try a bottle before too much longer.

She is so beautiful. I'm so glad she's doing much better. What a blessing. Henry sleeps with a sound machine and has since the day he was born. We don't go anywhere without it. We sleep with one, too. They are wonderful :) It's not a bad habit!!! Prayers still coming your way!

Love your cousins, Jojo & Boo

What a beautiful baby!!! It is so good to see you holding her. There's nothing in the world like that feeling. Aaron, the boys and I enjoyed looking at the pics...Boo kept saying, "AWHHH" every time we went to the next picture. They liked the one of her smiling especially. Check on y'all soon.
