I've made a few other observations about the pumping process, but the one that's the most noticeable is how Meg is literally transferring her energy from breast to bottle. I can actually see her energy level drop from start to finish.
Over the last couple of days, the girls have all been making excellent progress. Isabelle finally had her breathing tube removed, so all three are on nasal cannulas, breathing room air. We haven't been given any guidance on when they'll take those off, but let me tell you, I can't wait to see their cute little faces without tubes and tape! Also, this morning, they had their central lines removed from their belly buttons and had their picc lines put in.
I wasn't there this morning to take a photo, but because Isabelle had her breathing tube removed last night and was doing so well, Meg was able to hold her for the first time. I'll get my chance on Tuesday night! The other girls have been getting more than their fair share of cuddling. Strike that. You can never cuddle too much with these miracles.
Enjoy today's moment of bliss, below!
