We can check another day off with favorable results. Annie and I are so relieved, we actually have time to breathe. Annie can get some time to rest and I can get a quick workout in without worrying about every second of the day.
The nurse actually said Drake has had a stellar day. For the last week and a half, he has been so sick that he had to have a dedicated nurse. Usually each baby will share a nurse with another baby in the same room. Today, Drake is doing so much better that he and Kennedy will share the same nurse tonight. That is good news. He is now completely off of one of the diuretics and is 3/4 weened off of the pain medication drip he was on. He will still be given something periodically for sedation to keep him calm. He gets aggravated that he cannot move around very well and also doesn't like the nurses touching him....I would feel the same way since the last 2 weeks every time they touch him he got poked or stuck with something. He did lose another 5 ounces since yesterday which makes a total of 1 pound over the last two days. He is starting to look so much better.
Kennedy has been rather touchy the last two days, not sure why she is acting up. We hope so much that this is not a prelude to another infection. She just finished her antibiotics from the infection she had, so a new one would be unlikely. As long as she is left alone, she is fine...so we leave her alone.
