They extubated Katherine a few hours ago and have put her on a SiPAP machine instead (to help prevent her lungs from collapsing). She has a tiny little mask over her nose now that is pretty much just blowing oxygen at her and she is doing all her breathing on her own. She is doing great with it so far.
Just as I was typing this post, she started getting upset. Soooo I went over to her to try and sooth her and guess what?!?! She started sucking on her paci! Hallelujah, how exciting that she still remembers =) This makes us very happy and hopeful that she will be a good feeder. It also makes us happy because now we know at least one way to sooth her when she gets upset, a necessary staple in the toolbox of any new parent, hehe. Yay!
