Consistency in the NICU is the best thing you can wish for. They continue to tell us that "No news is good news"...I am fortunate to say that today comes with little news.
Drake had a goal of 50 cc of urine last night, he got 82cc! He continues to defy all expectations set forth for him. The X-ray on his knee did not show any fractures or breaks, that is such great news! It is pretty black and blue so they are going to continue to monitor it for potential ligament damage. He is getting to go up slightly on his feeds, this is so much better than the IV drip nutrition he has been getting. He will be slowly weened off of the diuretics as he is beginning to get too low on some of the valuable electrolytes that were life threateningly high last week.
Kennedy is up to 9cc of milk and she is continuing to grow quickly. I actually enjoy changing her diaper, for now, because it gives me an opportunity to get in there and interact with her. She is such a sweet baby and has beautiful eyes.
In the next few weeks, Drake's swelling should go down. We can't hardly wait to be able to get in there and interact with him again. It is so difficult when the only interaction is from the outside looking in.
