One of Ben's favorite "games" to play right now is smack down. This is where he pretends to punch you like you are boxing and then you fall down. Well he now has a new friend to play with. Miss Kate is a fighter!! Matt and I finally got some sleep last night (I had been up for almost 48 hours straight). I woke up at about 4 this morning so I made it down to the nursery for "cares." Gretchen, Kate's nurse, told me that Kate had pulled out her CPAP 2 times during the night. While I was there she was flailing about trying to "punch" Gretchen as she was changing out her tape. It was cracking me up. It was making Kate very upset and her stats were falling. She was even holding her breath when she got mad. It makes me very nervous for when she is 2 years old (and a teenager). She is going to be strong willed! They were trying to decide what they were going to do with her because she was fighting the CPAP so hard. Fighting is a good sign that she is feeling better. It was also cool because I was able to give her a paci for the first time and she loved it! So she is doing pretty well this morning. Pray they can figure out the best way to keep her comfortable today. I will try to take some more pictures today.
