Room Air

So Evangelynn is practically down to room air and is still only taking 2L.  Today was the first day that I ever saw her not get really upset or cry when the cannula was disconnected for a minute while we put her back in bed.  This is great because it means that even at 2L she is not as dependent on it anymore.  If her breathing slows down enough tonight the NICU will call me so that I can go in and try to nurse her.  One of the best things about today is that when it is time for a bottle she is waking up hungry, opening her eyes, beginning to squirm and (best of all) trying to mouth and suck on everything in sight.  It was neat to see her act so much like a well baby!!  She also furiously sucks her paci while we are feeding her through her tube.  This is great practice and the nurse tonight commented that she thinks Evangelynn will take very well to nursing :)  Let's pray that this is the case!
