One big happy family

Alex is loving being home again and doing really well. The thickened formula has helped so much with her coordination when she drinks her bottle -it's like we're feeding a different child. Our hope is that she is no longer aspirating with the thickened feeds and her lungs continue to recover from the RSV so that we can get her off the oxygen. She's a pro at pulling it off, chewing on it, and taking it out of her nose.

The angel is sleeping through the night without making a peep. She's has been smiling and laughing and just being her happy self. We've once again established a routine - nothing strict because we're a pretty laid back family - but one that involves a couple of naps, a bath or two, and lots of playtime.

We are so thankful for all of our faithful followers, offers of help, and prayers. We'll let you know if we need anything. We are looking forward to the weekend and enjoying the beautiful weather.
