Another calm day here in the NICU. It's nice to not be updated from the doctor until after noon because our babies are not the critical ones this week. The fact that the doctors are not wanting to talk to me first thing in the morning is a very good thing. Of course we still have the daily alarms and bells with heart rates dropping too low and oxygen levels in the blood dropping down, but over all they a both doing well for their age and size.
Kennedy: She is doing well and I was able to hold her swaddled today for the first time. I love kangaroo time, but this was special too because I was able to see her pretty face the whole time. She is remaining stable on her minimal settings and her feeds are going well also.
Drake: We did not hear back from the ortho about his knee today so hopefully tomorrow morning. The infectious disease doctor that comes by daily (at 5am) said that his knee does not appear to have any kind of infection. His joint does not appear to be affected either, and he still has full range of motion. Drake and I had an earlier kangaroo date today so mommy will be getting in bed a little earlier tonight. The doctor also plans on doing an MRI tomorrow to get a better look at his knee.
