January 5th

I knew better than to blog last night! Baby Cohen had a hard day. He did so well yesterday they turned down his vapotherm from 6 liters per minute to 5 liters this morning. He made it about 2 hours and then his saturation levels bottomed out. They moved him back up to 6 and added more supplemental oxygen. So, we are back where we started originally on the vapotherm. He seems pretty comfortable at 6 liters, so maybe this is as high as he will have to go.
When his saturation level drops, he turns a shade of blue. It's pretty terrible, but again they assure us this is just what happens with babies that come 3 months early.

Justin and I have been so blessed to be able to spend time with Cohen everyday since he has been born. Those of you that know us well, know we try to find some humor in our lives no matter what the situation (this is just how we cope). As we sit and spend many hours in the NICU with Cohen, we look out the window below and stare at the view of Krispy Kreme Donuts. We are highly aware of when the "red light" illuminates. You can even smell the donuts....I am not kidding, you really can! Needless to say, we have drowned our sorrows in donuts more that enough! If anyone needs a dozen or two, let us know and we will bring them home for you!!

Thank you for your continued prayers for Cohen. We are just so in love with him already, and can't wait to share him with all of you.
