That is how much both babies weigh. Yes, Drake has caught up with sister! Exactly 4# 4.8oz. I couldn't believe it!
Drake: His urine culture came back positive with graham negative rods. This means he has a urinary tract infection. The graham negative rods meant that anther lumbar puncture (spinal tap) had to be done. Poor Drake! The doctor did it this afternoon and Drake was a champ! The preliminary results are back and it looks good. His spinal fluid does not show signs of an infection. This is wonderful news! They have added a third antibiotic and the infectious disease doctor will be in early in the morning to reevaluate. He will decide what specific antibiotics need to be continued and which can be stopped. He will also decide how long to treat. Because Drake had previously had a UTI, he was already on a preventative medicine when he got this infection. Once this infection is cleared, we will be meeting with a urologist. They will need to do a test which inserts a dye into a catheter to see if he has urinary tract reflux. If this is the case, a procedure will be done to correct the problem.
Kennedy: She is doing really good! In fact, she is already figuring out how to get what she wants. She was a little fussy this afternoon so I picked her up out of her crib. It still feels weird that I can go and pick her up whenever I want to without asking for permission or assistance. As soon as I picked her up, she was calm and happy. So, I ended up holding her for several hours. I just didn't want to put her down. My mom was able to hold her granddaughter for the first time today! That was a fun moment to experience. I know she can't wait to do the same with Drake. We put Kennedy's mobile on her crib today and she was very intrigued. I can't wait for Brian to see her tomorrow! I know he is excited about picking her up on his own.
