Goerlich pod

We now officially own one-half of the NICU pod -not only are all four of our babies lined up on one side of the pod, but we also got our first hospital bill.

Cohen is pretty much wireless now except for heart rate monitor and he is in a mega-crib. This thing looks more like a rolling jail cell - it's all metal. But who cares because soon Cohen, Sophia and Finn will all be together again.

Sophia looks like such a little sweetheart sleeping in all pink. We can't wait to re-unite her with her brothers - I'm sure she's going to start bossing them around as soon she can. She eats more than any of the boys right now!

Finn keeps "de-satting", where his oxygen saturation levels drop below 85%. The good thing is that he usually bounces back on his own. They are thinking of putting him back on oxygen and maybe starting him on antibiotics just to be on the safe side. He loves to be in his little cave with his covers pulled over his head or just loungin' daddy-style.

Noah is still rockin! He takes a little milk from the bottle twice a day to get him used to the idea of feeding. The rest of his milk is fed through the ostomy that is the end of the small intestine so that the rest of his intestines and colon can do their job. Noah and Cohen were re-united for a while last night - they just slept in Mom's arms.

Cohen is slated to come home sometime next week. He has little episodes of bradycardia, where his heart rate drops below 86. This only happens sometimes when he is feeding so they don't really count towards his "7 days of no brady" rule.

My sister's baby, Madeleine, turns the big 1 today. Happy Birthday Madeleine!!! Unfortunately, we are going to miss her birthday bash in Austin but we are there in spirit.
What? Like you've never seen a 1-year old!

A year ago you may not have known what joys God had in store for you - but now you are experiencing so much through Him with these four miracles He has given you. Thanking and praising Him for all He has done and will do in their lives. In Christ's love, A.S.
