A Good Day For Niklas

When I arrived at the NICU tonight, I was surpised to see Niklas on C-PAP doing Kangaroo Care with Greta which lasted almost 2 hours. He has made such awesome progress over the past week. His breathing has been excellent and his X-Rays were spectacular. Gabbie is now on the nasal cannula 24 hours a day, while Lukas is up to about 50/50. Gabbie is also going up on her food intake as well, she was at 9cc this morning and will be on 12cc tomorrow. It's been nice to have such a good week after having such a down one. Not much else to say today except that we are both exhausted and are going to sleep early tonight. Thanks again for all of the support we have received through this blog, and all the comments from everyone we didn't even know were reading it.

I've been so busy at work the past two days that I haven't had a chance to check the blog until now, but I am so excited to hear that all three are doing well! I love the pictures of Gabbie and Lukas - it's so great to be able to look at them!

It was wonderful to see Greta today...listening to her talk about her babies and seeing her face light up as she described their personalities made my heart warm. I love reading the blog & seeing the triplets progress...I am over the moon that all are getting stronger & especially that Niklas is able to enjoy some mommy contact (that is GREAT)! Hopefully ALL 5 of you sleep well tonight! x

Greta, you have had a great attitude from the moment you learned that there were three. Positive and determined!- I was so happy to read that you had kangaroo care with Niklas, especially hearing you talk about the difficulties yesterday. This really is spectacular! We read the blog every day, here in Tech Info. Thanks for sharing your wonderful family with us.
