God is doing Wonders: NICU day 25

What a Wonderful Thanksgiving!! Sean and I have so many blessings to be thankful for this year and to top it off, the boys were doing really, really well on Thursday and Friday. We took pictures of them on Friday and the one of Carter is so good. The nurse took his little nose tube off for a few seconds so we could get a good picture of his face.  The picture of Luke is just precious. His little hand laying on his face is so sweet. He's doing really good sucking on the paci to help keep his mouth closed. And check out his diaper! Let's just say that Luke's system is working very well. They have graduated him to larger diapers to say the least.

Both boys are doing wonderful on their steroids and are increasing their amount of milk very rapidly. Luke is off the Oscillator and the throat tube, and is back on the nose tube like Carter. The nose tube still helps them to breath, as the boys need to keep their mouths closed, but it is a HUGE step in the right direction.
Carter  (the best picture we have so far)

Both little ones are getting bigger and they seem so much more aware of everything. Hopefully in a few days I will be able to Kangaroo with Luke. This was a great Thanksgiving and God is doing wonders with our precious boys.
