It's been 5 days since I last saw Evelyn, and I think it's been tough for both of us. So today she arrived with Ian to meet her little sisters, and it couldn't have really gone any better. She's been a total pro at being quiet and washing her hands everytime she wants to touch one of them. She was very very gentle, and made sure both the girls were sang to (cutest video ever). We couldn't be more proud of how Evelyn handled meeting her sisters. She is a little fragile at the moment, so even the slightest wrong word can set her off in tears. When she said goodbye to me she was fine, but then apparently had a bit of a meltdown on the way to the car.
Pippa and Penny have both been quiet and chilled out today, I don't think I've heard their stats monitor bleep a single time. I had a good long cuddle with Pippa today and Ian should be able to give Penny a squeeze later on. Pippa has coped really well on her nasal prongs and Penny is now on them too. We didn't realise until today that the ventilation they were on before, was the only thing stopping them being transferred back to Leeds. Apparently CPAP is too wobbly to transport, but high flow air is fine. So the doctors signed and sent off their paperwork to Leeds today, and now it's just a waiting game to see when Leeds has space available for us. The downside is there are no family rooms available for us here at the moment, so I'm hanging onto my place on the ward as best I can!
