A lot to share...

Ok so I haven't posted in awhile. Between the internet being down at my house and just being busy, there isn't much time for much else.

Here's what's new...
Current Weights-
Blake 2lbs 13oz
Addison 2lbs 2ozs

Blake - Rascal
Addison - Miss Priss or Princess
These names came from the nurses lol

Both babies are on CPAP, Blake has been on for a week now and Addison is on day two. It took a few doses of the steroid treatment to get Addison ready but she is really holding her own now. I have been having pep talks with her and letting her know there is no turning back now. I think she has figured out that life better without the vent. She now gets daily "snuggle" time, mainly with Mommy but it will be Daddys turn soon.

Blake decided that he would take himself off the vent and pulled his tube out. Meanwhile his nurse just stood there like a deer in the headlights, thankfully the practitioner was standing at Addisons bedside and was able to jump in, along with three other nurses. And luckily Blake really was ready and could hold his own during the confusion. Last weekend Daddy had "snuggle" time with Blake and I mist say they both enjoyed it. So much intact that they both fell asleep.

Addison is still on the steroids but they are weening them down. Now we just pray that she  doesn't slide backwards once she is off of them, which the doctors say is possible. That being said Addison is hardheaded and likes to prove people wrong so I am sure she will do just fine.

Their head ultrasounds...Blake's is "stable" and the doc thinks the growth is just normal development at this point. Addison is officially RESOLVING !!!!!

And I think that pretty much sums it all up. Now l will work on getting my internet fixed to get pics and more updates.
