We were supposed to go today and receive the results of the apnea monitor, but all appointments were canceled this morning around 8:30. Apparently something went haywire with the computers and the information could not be retrieved. They are going to reschedule as soon as possible. My daddy came over this morning to help me get her to the appointment. I am still trying to learn how to get baby, oxygen, pulse ox, apnea monitor, purse, and diaper bag all at the same time. It's not really an appointment for, but I couldn't leave her at home. So my wonderful daddy offered to sit with her in the car while I went in. I was sad that he had to drive all the way over and we didn't end up having the appointment. However, I was thrilled because he got to visit with her for a little while and he also got to watch her take a bottle.
Take a glance at the picture below and tell me what you notice (other than the poor quality of the picture, my good camera battery was dead and I had to use my old camera).
So, did you notice? Just in case you didn't I will spill the beans. Morgan Kate is not wearing her cannula. That's right. When I first saw her without it it was like looking at someone who you always see with glasses on and then they take them off. When Travis got home he didn't even notice. That's just how accustomed we have grown to the cannula - we don't even see it. Now, this is nothing permanent. I was changing the "dots" on her face this afternoon and I decided to just see how she would do without the cannula. We were in the room, very near to the oxygen tank if needed and for a little over an hour she did great. She did not have any sat drops. After about an hour I decided or reminded myself that I am not in the medical profession and that I should probably put the cannula back on my baby and let the doctors handle that. However, I was very pleasantly surprised to see her do so well and I will be sharing this info with the pulmonolgist on Friday. She is amazing!
These last two pictures are more examples of growth. Notice the dots in picture one and notice the dots in picture two. Wow! Same exact dots, just much bigger baby.
