One Week Old Today!

Started today with good news! We thought we were going to have to anxiously await the brain scans this morning, but the doctors met me when I walked in the nursery this morning. He said Drake did not have any brain bleed at all, and Kennedy had a level one out of four which is so insignificant it will not matter. This is such exciting news because it is something that was causing us a great deal of worry.  Kennedy is currently receiving her second blood transfusion. Kennedy's CO2 levels were high on her morning test. The goal today is to figure out why and to resolve the issue. Drake is receiving his last dose of indocin (for his PDA in his little heart) and will begin back on mommy's milk this evening. He is scheduled for another echo-cardiogram tomorrow to see if the medicine worked to close the valve.
