From Beth: Well, I know it has been a while since we updated and I apologize to all who check this site.  I have been working on our Senior Recognition Sunday stuff and Sarah Beth has been very touchy lately.  She hasn't really liked having anything done, especially pictures.  We shot a couple each day just to keep up, so I put which day they were taken under them.

We spent all last week on the CPAP.  She came off the nasal cannula on Monday morning after having been on it from Friday through Sunday.  It was sad to see her with those tubes back.  But, she was on the CPAP for 5 days and went back onto the cannula on Friday night at 6:00 p.m.  She has been doing fairly well on it.  Her oxygen levels have been high and she doesn't seem to be laboring to breathe.  They took her ventilator machine (also the CPAP machine) away tonight.  We hope that is a good sign that they think she'll stay on the cannula and not have to be back on the CPAP again.

She is getting bigger every day.  It definitely will not be her weight that keeps her at the hospital.  She'll be big enough to go home within the next few weeks, but her breathing and eating will keep her there for a while longer.  We are still praying she'll be home by the end of June at the latest.  She has been in the NICU for 47 days now.

I did get to hold her tonight.  Our favorite nurse was working this weekend and she let me hold her.  She did wonderfully in my arms.  We took lots of pictures but to save some people from waiting forever for the page to load, click here for those pictures.

Thank you all again for your continued prayers.  We still need them!
