Reece has had a great weekend. She had her stitches removed, her bag put on, and as of yesterday is officially off of the ventilator (again)! She has also gone from 5L of oxygen to 3L and shown little change. She is a little swollen still from surgery, and you can see her little scar all the way across her belly.

Daddy's wedding band as a bracelet!
We got some great pictures of our little Louise with her eyes open yesterday. She did o.k. this weekend, and hopefully will come off of the ventilator today or tomorrow. She is having some high heart rate and blood pressure issues, and this morning her nurse told us that after they sealed her chest tube off, the pneumothorax got larger. Ugh, I just can't wait for her to get better so I can hold her. (She has her brain ultrasound today......We are actively praying for good news)
Charlie has had a great weekend and is being so good! He is still having the Brady episodes (heart slowing down), but they are few and far between now. His oxygen was turned to three liters and this seemed to help. We reached a big milestone, because Charlie has tolerated feedings of mama's milk for almost 24 hours now (.4 mL every 3 hours). He's already gained an ounce since yesterday....we can't wait to fatten this little boy up!
