I'm glad to report that both babies are holding steady. The preliminary reports on Drake's spinal fluid show normal ranges on all levels and the culture has not grown anything. Therefore, they plan to stop antibiotics in two days. We will know the final results of the culture tomorrow evening. We are praying for things to remain clear. Oh, I can't wait to see my baby boy without any IVs! He is still being a little rock star with his digestion. He loves his milk! I look forward to the day they are able to drink from a bottle rather than a feeding tube. Instead of kangarooing today, I was able to hold him in my arms. This meant I was able to see his precious face.
Kennedy is still doing well on CPAP! She completed her first 72 hours, and I was able to hold her again. She did not have any heart rate drops during the day shift today! Way to go! They even dropped the rate on her CPAP and she tolerated that too. Her little cry is starting to get stronger as her vocal cords heal from the ventilation tube. I am looking forward to her bath time at 11:30. I will get to dress her up in another cute onsie!
My heart is full this evening after having a steady day and being able to hold both of my precious babies. One day, I look forward to holding them both at the same time in our home.
