We were surprised today when I called the NICU and was told that Kaitlyn is off oxygen completely! We had pretty much resigned ourselves that we were going to be going home on oxygen, but this now changes things. She could still back-slide once the steroids wear off, but we are hoping that won’t be the case. She still has chronic lung disease, but this is a big step in the right direction for her lungs healing.
She went down in weight the last 2 days, so she is slightly under 5 1/2 pounds.
Miss Kaitlyn was wide-awake today when we visited her, just like she knew that we were so excited for her and she was excited for us. What a great day!
Hi Mom and Dad! Look, no oxygen tubes. (the tube in Kaitlyn's nose is her feeding tube - it really doesn't bother her)
More pictures of my sweetie Kaitlyn looking intently at Dad
This was right before Kaitlyn pulled out her nasal feeding tube without meaning to
So many cute pictures today, I couldn't decide which ones to post!

Kaitlyn is getting "fed" in this picture. The nurse is gavaging her my milk. Gravity pulls it into her stomach via the tube in her nose.
