Happy 3 months Faith!!!!

Faith is 3 months old day! And she is STILL on CPAP and STILL doing marvelous! This is nothing short of a miracle. She is still at 21% oxygen (which is room air). She is a little cranky because she withdrawing from the morphine she has been on all week (she's almost like a crack baby.) Nevertheless her crankiness has not affected her heart rate or her oxygen saturation level. Even more exciting, yesterday Faith took 10 ml's from a bottle! This is huge! Now that Faith is off of the vent we can focus on getting her to feed (right now she is being fed by a feeding tube.) It is hard for these little ones to get the suck, swallow, breathe reflex so it may take some time, but each day she will get a little closer. In order for Faith to come home she needs to "nipple" all her feeds by breast or bottle. We finally feel like we can see a glimpse of light out of this tunnel! Praise God!!!!!
