Everything is moving along very quickly. Ella and Cole got moved into their open cribs today. Cole is up to 6 bottles a day, we have found that is a major chugger, so we are having to give him a slow flow nipple on his bottle otherwise he chokes. Casen is up to all 8 bottles now. He is still working on getting his isolette temp down so he can go to an open crib. Cooper is up to 5 bottles and doing good. He too is working on temp in isolette. Dr. Al said that the babies must be starting to smell home. He said Ella is having her sleep study done on Sunday, and that is then sent to Texas Children's Hospital to be read. THis is to determine if she needs to be sent home with an apnea monitor and oxygen. THis takes a couple of days to get back, then is she is still doing ok then she will have her car seat test. This test is to see if she can sit in a car seat for an hour and not forget to breathe. If she passes then we are looking at her coming home. That may even be in the next week. I am not going to get my hopes up, so I am not let down. I will just wait for word she is ready to leave. ;) I think Casen and Cole will be pretty quick to follow her. Cooper will not be far behind them. I see the light at the end of the tunnel.
