Today when I arrived at the NICU, Greta had already done Kangaroo Care with both Lukas and Gabbie for about 2 hours each, so it was my turn. I got to hold Niklas tonight, and not only that, he was on nasal cannula the whole time. I held him for an hour and then they kept him on the cannula for another hour or so. He was at about 29% oxygen which is getting pretty close to room air. Looks like all they prayers for Niklas have been having a positive effect! Gabbie is going to have her lipids taken away tomorrow. Lipids are fats that are given to premies through the I.V. and since she is eating so well they are taking them away. I must say, there is nothing more gratifying than disappearing equipment and lines. Lukas had an uneventful day, which is also a wonderful thing. I know we have a lot more bumps in this road, but it is sure nice to celebrate the progress all 3 have made over the past week. The picture here is of Niklas, and its not really a good one as his color really doesn't look like that. Also, he had his eyes open staring at me for about 10 minutes or so tonight.
