Evangeline continues to recover from her infection. She still has a swollen abscess on her jaw that they think is an infected salivary gland, but it has been going down. Hopefully it will continue to go down and won't be a problem or require surgery. They FINALLY started feeds again (she was starving- trying her darnedest to milk that paci). She is tolerating them well, and they are increasing the amount daily and weaning off her IV fluids. She is on antibiotics until Tuesday, and I'm hoping by the end of the week she may be able to get off her PICC line, and take off with bottle feeding! We love this precious girl, our hearts ache for all she has been through.

We have now been in the NICU a month and the girls are 36 weeks gestation. If Ms Audrey can avoid any set backs in the next few days, she will most likely be home at the end of the week! She has been regulating her temperature, keeping her heart rate and oxygen saturation up, gaining weight, finishing her bottles, & she has passed her car seat test! We cannot wait to have her home all to ourselves! It's like Christmas!
