Guess What Guess What!!!

This little Chipotle burrito is not an old pic of Korbin on CPAP it is in fact,
our Brody Love!!!!! When I came in yesterday my jaw hit the floor when i saw it, the nurses said "SURPRISE!".



CPAP stands for continuous positive airway pressure. A nasal CPAP device consists of a tube with tiny prongs that fit into the baby's nose, which is hooked to a machine that provides oxygenated air into the air passages and lungs. The pressure from the CPAP machine helps keep a preemie's lungs open so he or she can breathe. However unlike the ventilator, the machine does not provide breaths for the baby, so the baby breathes on his or her own.

Oh we're so so so proud of him!

You think that's cool?!




Keep scrolling down....














Keep going...











Are you ready?!










BAM!!! NASAL CANULA BABY!!!





Watch out brother and sisters, here I come!
That's right, Brody has caught up with the others and is breathing room air! He was only on CPAP for about 24 hours and the nurses said he has not had and apneas or bradys all day being on nasal canula! This just shows you the power of prayer!
Korbin and the girls are doing well too. Korbin has the whole eating/digesting thing down and should start gaining weight soon. Brody and the girls are still working on it....
but they'll get there!
We received the list of names of those of you who are praying for us daily, it took our breath away. Hundreds among hundreds of names are on it... people we know... people we don't know... people from all over the world... Italy, Venezuela, Germany, Canada... just to name a few. Thank you all so so so much for praying :) I have not hung the list up in the NICU yet, Bethany said she is still getting many emails that she will add to the list. If you are interested, scroll down to the post labeled "PRAYER LIST". *As most of you know, and you have seen already, life in the NICU is a roller coaster ride. Things can change (for better or worse) within seconds. Please continue to pray that the babies continue to improve and reach milestones
needed in order to go home.* Thank you!

  4. Yes, God is so good. Our Bible study this past week showed us so many "reversals of destiny". God has certainly reversed little Brody's destiny. From last Monday having us so afraid we were going to lose him to this Monday him doing so well he could go on the CPAP. This is so awesome. This just poves we need to lean on God, He has a plan for this little guy. Love Mom
