During the weekend, Olivia has had a few apnea spells with her feedings. This is just part of being premature and learning to eat (suck, swallow, breathe all at the same time). Overnight, she needed a little oxygen to recover during one of these spells, so she is not ready to come home yet. I would much rather have her be ready, than have a problem at home and need to bring her back. I asked about home apnea monitors and they prefer not to send her home on one. So, for now Olivia is still in the Special Care Nursery where she needs to be.
She is so beautiful. She is growing. Our family is so blessed. Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers.
Natalie and Olivia
