Guess who opened her eyes?!

Guess Who Opened Her Eyes?! That's right...Kennedy was able to open her eyes today! What a beautiful sight! She had a blood culture which came back positive yesterday for an infection; therefore, she has started on two different antibiotics. The good news is that it was caught early. Prayers requested for the antibiotics to be able to eliminate the infection. She is up in her weight also to 1# 14oz! She'll be 2# before we know it. Her blood tests came back this morning looking really good on all of her levels.

Drake is doing really well. His morning blood tests came back with a good report too. He is weighing in today at 2# 1.9oz. That's our boy!

The doctor said that he is extremely pleased that they are both doing so well with nutrition. They have both been moved up to 6cc every 3 hours and they seem to be tolerating this very well. Both are able to digest, which is wonderful in a micro preemie.


  1. What a blessing to read that you have been able to look in their sweet little eyes! I know they loved seeing their amazing parents! Prayers continue for their remarkable journey!

  2. AWESOME !!!! Now they both can try and put a face with their wonderful mommy and daddy. Drake & Kennedy could not have asked for better parents :) Hang in there and let me know if I can do anything for you all. Love ya.

    1. Thank you, Sheron! We can't wait until we are able to bring them to a family reunion!

  3. What a blessing you all are for each other! What wonderful news! Keep growing Drake and Kennedy! You are all in our prayers!

  4. Yay for good news and growing babies! Keeping you guys in my prayers every day!

  5. I'm so glad your kids are getting stronger and bigger with each day. My prayers are with your family so you may bring your beautiful children home as soon as possible. ~TSR Lisa
