Good Morning Friends! Things have been going better this week in the NICU. The doctors did a bunch of tests after I had to go back on the ventilator to see if they could figure out why I had slipped back so far. All of the tests came back negative... so there isn't an answer as to what happened. They started a second round of steroids and since then the ventilator settings have come way down. Hopefully I will be back on the CPAP in the next few days. I have been feeling pretty good and have my fiesty attitude back. Still hoping to come home soon, but as the nurses keep letting me know... the road of a preemie is not straight and who knows what is in store for me!

I have had a rough couple of days. On Saturday my oxygen requirements started to go way up and therefore the doctors decided to put me back on the ventilator. This means that I now have the tube back in my mouth. Since then, there have not been many changes and they are not sure why I have gone back this far. They are doing as many tests as possible to figure it out, and hopefully we can come up with a solution to get me moving foward again. In the meantime... I need all the positive thoughts and love I can get... it is currently a hard part of my journey.

This has been kind of a rought week. One of ups and downs... I got an infection this week and needed my CPAP settings to be turned up. The good thing is that the doctors were able to figure out what the infection was quickly and the antibiotics are already kicking in. My CPAP settings are back to where they were before the infection... so I am ready to move foward. I now weight 1390 grams! Still need to meet that four pound goal before they consider sending me home. That, and the whole breathing thing! As for my eyes... the injection into my eyeballs has worked! The specialist came to check them out and said that the ROP is gone. I have to continue with followups for a while, but we are very glad that I did not have to go through laser surgery. Mom and dad still visit all the time, and are holding me daily. I am looking foward to the day when I can come home!
