Good news!

 Will, David and Marcie (the first three babies to be pulled from the womb) are now off the ventilators and on the CPAP instead! They are also receiving little feeds, and I'm so grateful to God for His work in my body that I can already provide for them. The first milk is so beneficial, especially when it's from their own mommy.

The NICU staff estimate Seth will be able to join in on the CPAP and feeding fun either tomorrow or the next day. Right now both he and Gracie are getting some blood pressure medication (very normal because they were the last two out), but the last time I was in the NICU Gracie's nurse told me they were able to decrease the dose because she was already doing better. As the tiniest one and very last one out, we deeply appreciate your prayers for her (and the other four, too, of course!). The first 72 hours are the most critical.

The clinical coordinator for the NICU just came in again, saying they are all doing so well and that "Everything went perfect today." The doctors, nurses, anesthesiologists, respiratory therapists, and everyone else on the Code 5 team were amazing. All glory to God for His care and provision!

With so much gratitude and joy,
The Mommy
