My days without internet

Moving to the new house has been great. I love having my own space and being in my own bed! The Cochran's are trying hard to get things done, but it is going slowly. I wish I could be more help, but there is a little girl that seems to take up ll my time. I help here ant there when I can though. I was pretty upset on Monday when we found out we wouldn't get internet until Thursday, but I survived some how. I missed talking to Johnny so much, but my countdown helped because it was finally in the single digits and my baby's little face helped too!

Yesterday was a very happy day for me. I am still on a high from it. We went to the doctor yesterday because Daphne has thrush, don't worry she is on her meds and it is already clearing up. We found out that she has grown 2 inches and gained 2.1 lbs since she was born. I couldn't believe it. I knew she looked bigger, but I was still shocked. I knew before I went that I wanted to ask to see if we could start weaning her off the O2 instead of waiting 'til her 1 month appointment, but I didn't even have to ask him. He said we would do a very fast wean for her because he knows we want to go back with Johnny. I thought this meant a couple days, nope. This meant a half hour. He lowered the amount left and came back in 10 minutes. He did this until she was off and her O2 levels didn't go down so she was free! Okay not quite yet. We had to do a 4 hour "room air" test. If she passed THEN she would be free from the O2 tank, if she failed she would still have to use it at night. He hasn't officially gotten back with the results, but I was watching her levels the whole time and they only dipped once and it was during tummy time and she was having a little fit. So most likely she is done with the O2!!! I also got the internet back so that means I could talk to Johnny again, always a great source of joy. To top it off I only had 2 more days 'til "daddy comes home"!!! We can not wait! as of right now we only have 29 hours!!!! Yes I know I'm crazy, crazy for Johnny!
