Just wanted to update everyone- the girls have made some good progress this week!
Elisabeth has joined the girls in the crib! She curled right up with them, and has done well at maintaining her temp. I'm sure cuddling up with her sisters helps with that. She is now 3 lbs 7 oz.
Natalie was taken off the caffeine yesterday morning and has not had any breathing spells so far so that is also great news. Both she and Elisabeth are bottle feeding once a shift. They are still getting the hang of it. Natalie is now 3 lbs 14 oz.
Anna is now bottle feeding every other feeding as she has picked it up very well. I also was able to successfully nurse her yesterday, although she had a little trouble today. She is now 4 lbs 2 oz. She is continually to do so well and we know they may send her home before the others. I'm not sure what we will do if that happens, but hopefully it will just be a matter of days between them coming home.
Here are some pics of the three reunited!
