Overall, we had a good day today. These little ones have been on a roll, and the good days have been keeping our spirits up. There were a few things that had us concerned, but with some precautionary x-rays everything was fine.
Drake had to have 3 X-rays today. The doctor said that through the normal scouting X-ray that they do three times per week, they saw something in his intestines that resembled a blockage. They continued to watch it through several more X-rays throughout the day. Luckily it was just stool. Tomorrow will be the day he will have a sonogram and X-ray on his knee. Then on Monday the orthopedic doctor will come in and take a look. The poor knee is not going down in size while his body continues to lose the fluid weight. Everything else is going really well. Food is increasing, ventilator settings are decreasing and mommy/Drake kangaroo time happens daily!
Kennedy is continuing to move forward. She no longer has any IV's going into her arms or legs. She is only receiving mommy's milk, which is a huge step. Her ventilator settings are remaining low. Her little personality is shining through...and let me tell you there is nothing little about it. We are going to have our hands full! Now that the PIC line is out and she no longer requires IVs, she is wearing her first real preemie outfit...even if it is too big. We were not able to get pictures, but we will definitely have some tomorrow.
