Since the first few days in Dallas, we have been fortunate to have webcams on the babies isolettes at all times. This has been very much appreciated by not only us but grandparents, aunts, uncles, and a dad at work during the week. Brian calls me every morning when he starts his day, and he tells me that he has already checked on the babies. These cameras are specifically for babies in Giraffe Isolettes. These isolettes are enclosed and provide heat and humidity for micro-preemies. Since our little angels are getting bigger and stronger, they are ready for NICU cribs. This is wonderful because they are big enough and strong enough for this new bed; however, it is sad because we will lose our webcams. We have known for a few weeks now that this was coming. On the day they told us the transition would be made, the I.T. man came by to see me. To my surprise, he wasn't there about losing the cameras, he was there to see if we were willing to help with PR about the cameras. He told me they felt we would be excellent candidates to tell of our experience and how we have enjoyed the webcams since it is new technology to the hospital. The PR people are working with the news here in Dallas and in Tyler for the story. After everything the NICU at Dallas Presby has done for our family, we are happy to be able to help them. Plus, we get an extra week out of the cameras!
Update on shots: Kennedy has completed her shots as of this evening, and Drake's will be complete during the night. So far, they seem to be tolerating them well. The nurses are keeping a close eye on them. If all goes well, they will both be ready for cannula in a few days!
