Linking up with Twinfatuation Way Back When-esday. Thanks Cheryl for letting me play along!
I have decided to use Cheryl's link up as a way to post about the last few weeks in the NICU! These were the good days! The days that we knew our hospital time was limited. We were hearing promising words from nurses that included " at home "!
These pictures were taken on April, 4th 2008. Molly and Luke were 11 days from being 2 months old! This was a HUGE day for Luke! Can you tell by looking at the below picture why?? this is how Todd and I walked in to find him that morning.
He had been on a whiff Of oxygen for a week, but his night nurse took him completely off that night. This had been tried before, but he never lasted. This time he did! I can't describe what it was like to see your baby's face free of oxygen tubing for good! His face looked so much softer and baby like (see below)! It probably sounds crazy, but that is when I knew he was going to be fine. The fears of him not going home with me completely dissolved! My baby boy was a breather!
Look at my precious baby girl!
Luke did not want to celebrate his victory with us that day! His eyes just didn't want to stay open.
Yay, it's freedom week!
