Waiting and More Waiting

We visited the pulmonologist today. He is a great doctor, but the wait in that office is something else. So that we wouldn't have to wait out in the regular waiting room, exposing the kids to a host of diseases, we waited in the main nurses office. She had just come back from California, so she had a lot to chat about. Anyway, it comes down to the fact that both Adam and Eleanor will have multi-channel studies done (again) at the end of March. We will have to be admitted to the hospital and they will hook them up to all the monitors. If all goes well then, the oxygen and monitors will be discontinued. This does mean that we get to visit our friends in the NICU which is just down the hall, so that will be fun. Adam has really surprised us with how well he is doing off of his oxygen--I can hardly believe that he and Eleanor might come off it at the same time. It'll be nice to be able to move around the house with them without dragging the oxygen, as well as getting those giant green oxygen tanks that look like submarine missiles out of our bedroom. They were also weighed today--Eleanor weighs 12 pounds, and Adam weighs 13 pounds 7 ounces. The doctor said he was "impressed". I am impressed with both of them, too!! They are such little troopers.
