Today was the last day of help from my Mom for a while, but Greta's parents arrived from Lithuania today. Dailius (Greta's Dad) will be here for about 1 month, while Irena (Greta's Mom) will be here a few weeks longer. Today went by so fast that there was no time for a picture. We started the morning by trucking all 3 to the pulmonologist (lung doctor). Everybody looked good, but no one is coming off of oxygen yet. They think that Gabbie and Niklas will be on for another month, while Lukas could be on for a month or two longer. In fact, we actually increased Lukas's oxygen from .25 liter to .50 liter so that he can spend more of his energy growing. We were really hoping to get rid of some oxygen tanks, as the cords are getting really annoying and it makes it really cumbersome to leave the house. Leaving the doctor today, I put all of the babies in the car and rolled down the windows to air it out when the rear passenger window would not roll back up. I rushed to the dealership to get it in for repair and to get a rental car because there are many more appointments to come this week and the forecast calls for rain. So, tonight marks the changing of the guard and the mad dash to get these guys sleeping thought the night before Irena leaves. Whew!
