Happy 1 Month Birthday

I had 2 quick trips to the NICU this weekend, the one on Friday and one today. I am not sticking around as I still have something (malaria I think) that I don't want to pass on to the triplets. Yesterday Niklas pulled his cannula out of his nose, as he likes to do, but no one noticed since his oxygen levels never alarmed. They decided to just let him go without it and see how it goes. He has been without help on his oxygen for almost 2 days now and is doing great. This guy continues to surprise everyone. Gabbie is still doing great with her breast feeding and Lukas is just hanging in there, spending most of his time on C-PAP but doing well with his time on the cannula. It looks like the worst of the stomach infection is done with Lukas, as his feedings have resumed (although a little less than they were). Here is a picture of Gabbie in her civvies which make her look not so preemie like.

Beautiful baby girl-takes after her mommy! I love her outfit, it is the first of many fashion statements to come!

Love Auntie Sarah

I love seeing Gabby in pink; I definitely think it is her color.
Hooray to all three who continue to
make progress; especially Nick who continues to amaze us. Let's celebrate what they have accomplished this past month...no more vents, no more PIE, no more pnuemothorax, everyone is eating and gaining weight (including me), and they have recently been named the most beautiful grandchildren in the United States by People magazine. We will have more bumps in the road; but it will be so worth it. Love Granny

Congratulations Jason and Greta and Happy Birthday to the triplets.

I am Melissa's friend who had twin boys this past June (30 weeks gestation). I read your entire blog and can relate to your "roller coaster" experience.

Please feel free to contact Melissa for my phone number as I would love to help out anyway I can. :o)

I will continue to keep you all in my prayers.

I don't know if you got my message or not - left it in the comment section on the segment before Gabby's picture. She is adorable.

Anyway just wanted you to know that all of us here in NC are thinking about you guys today and praying that all goes well with Niklas. Love you guys - stay strong.

It won't be long 'til Gabby is playing dress-up in Greta's heels! She's a doll! Your message was very up-beat, maybe a little stress relief with all this good news. Hang in there and know that we're thinking of you. Lot's of prayers . . . SaraP

You guys are hard to catch! I've just missed Greta at SJMS several times when I've been at work doing research. I've called once but noone was up there. I don't want to come when I've been working in the unit-too many bugs!! But call CCU sometime when you're up there.2-3241.
