The One Week Mark

Wow! Thank you God for the week these little triplets have had! I understand that there are going to be ups and downs through all of this, but these guys have done so good. Yesterday, Gabbie went from the oscillating ventilator to the regular ventilator. Today ALL 3 required NO VENTILATOR!!! The nurses said it is basically unheard of to go straight from the oscillating ventilator to no ventilator at all. Yesterday Greta got to do a "laying of hands" on both Gabbie and Niklas where you place your hands completely over the top of the baby creating sort of a blanket. They absolutely love this. Today we both got to hold Lukas, which was absolutely awesome. It's hard to wait an entire week to hold them. In the picture, Lukas is on C-PAP which is esentially oxygen over the nose. Anyway, thanks to everyone for the positive thoughts and prayers.
