October 3rd, 2009

Carver is doing good. Even smiling a lot more. He has had some sad moments, but overall he's acting pretty normal. In fact, last night I didn't even put his O2 on him. I was afraid that the tubing would rub on the incision. He's on a monitor at night, so I figured - no harm. If the alarm goes off, I'll put the O2 on him. No alarms ALL night.

A happy moment.

A little sad/sleepy moment.

We received another toy from the Deaf/Blind organization. This one rewards the child with a blinking light when they put the shape in correctly. Once they have put all of the shapes in correctly, the toy plays music.

How is Kinnick doing? Well, not so good. She has caught another cold. She hasn't been eating well and she is unable to hold her sats during the day. Today, I have her on 1 lt of O2 and at times, we're having a hard time staying in the 90's. So, more breathing treatments and hoping and praying that we stay out of the hospital.

The days of the NICU continue to stay with us throughout life, don't they? One doing well and the other not as well. So sorry to hear about Kinnick being sick but great news with Carver!

Carver looks so good! Yeah!! I hope you guys keep all the sickness away this year. The flu season seems to be scarier than ever.

So nice to see a smile on Carver again! Emma will get her second CI in November (please God the insurance comes through!) and I'm excited and nervous at the same time. It's nice to see how quickly they recover.

Oh, and I want to let you know that I nominated you for an award. Come on over to my blog and for the details. Thanks for the inspiration and I will say a few extra prayers for Kinnick.
