We are finally moving forward! The first 5 weeks seemed to move at a snail's pace. And steps forward seemed to be countered by steps back. It is incredibly frustrating to watch your children struggle so much. To see them so upset and not be able to comfort them. To spend all day by their bed but not be able to touch them.
But the past week has changed everything! God is so gracious. Both boys continue their room air trials - Dean 9 hours twice per day and Warren 6 hours twice per day. So at least half of their lives are spent off breathing assistance. They are now in their big boy cribs, upgraded from the isolets.

It is so wonderful to be able to pick them up and hold the, when they cry, take pictures without going through a plastic shield, and love on them. Such a drastic difference. I mean, look how good Warren looks...breathing all by himself!
I am finally getting use of all my knitted/crocheted hats. Can't wait to put them in their football helmets in a few more weeks! Within the next 2 weeks, they should be off the cpap completely. Next hurdle...feeding by mouth. At least I get to be a part of that!
