Happy 4th of July! And Happy 27 weeks to Drake & Kennedy! We're all doing ok. Both Kennedy and Drake have moved up on their feedings; 5cc every 3 hours. The doctor is monitoring Kennedy's blood pressure and may do an echocardiogram later today to check the PDA valve in her heart. It could mean another round of indocin or blood pressure medicine. They are both being monitored closely for infections. With so many tubes, that is always a worry. However, the doctor said that the fact that both babies are so active is a good sign. They have been referred to as: wiggle worms, feisty, extremely active, ect... All of these are wonderful descriptions for such small babies.
Drake has both of his eyes open, Kennedy's are still closed. The footprints are Drakes, and the handprints with one footprint are Kennedy's.
Several people have asked for the address where we are staying. We don't really have one...we are staying in a parent room at the NICU in Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas. If an address is something you would like to have, we can receive mail at Annie's parents house in McKinney. 2218 Forest Crk, McKinney, TX, 75070.
