Pray for Lauren to Get Off Her Ventilator!!

Either Monday or Tuesday Dr's are going to take Lauren off of her ventilator. We are just praying she does well without it!! This will be the third time they'll attempt to see how she does without it (one planned attempt, one Lauren pulled out herself). Lauren's weight is now 3lbs 3oz so were praying she has the strength to sustain life without the support of a ventilator.

How the others are doing:

Gavin = 5 lbs Reese = 4 lbs Maggie = 4 lbs

All three are working on their bottles and coming along really well!

I am saying a prayer that Lauren handles breathing on her own. Gavin must like his food! That's awesome that he weighs 5lbs.... wow! I hope bottle feeding is going well. Your babies are going to be home very soon.

Keep smiling! We're all thinking of you.
Love, Jessica and Benjie

Hey Tiff and Jon! We will definitly be rooting little Lauren on and praying her strength will allow her to be done with the ventilator. I have to say it made me chuckle when I read she pulled it out once herself. She's showing her strength and will power. She's small but she's fiesty! I love it. Can't wait to hear how it goes! XOXO to all the babies (and of course both of you!)Busing

I cannot believe how big they all are already - all above 3 pounds already. That is just incredible! At that age, mine were just barely 4 pounds. You guys are doing such an amazing job with those 4 little ones. I will pray extra hard for Lauren, that she is able to breathe on her own without the ventilator! I hope that you guys are hanging in there, as always if you need anything at all...

Wow! It sounds like everyone is doing so well. It's so great to hear about all the weight gains from everyone! What an impressive display of strength from Lauren too, she's a fighter for sure! We'll continue to pray for her to get off her ventilator & for all 4 to keep gaining weight. You are amazing parents!
Love, Rosie
