As the saying goes, third times a charm; I hope this is true for our babies. It definitely was for Drake today. The doctors tried the third attempt for Drake's lumbar puncture (spinal tap). It was successful! Hopefully this means that he will be able to stop antibiotics and get his IV out. We are praying for his spinal fluid to be free and clear of infection. The fluid has been sent for culture, and we will have results in 48 hours. This morning was Drake's turn to have a note for daddy. We really have the best nurses. The doctor got a kick out of it too!
Tomorrow at 10:30am will mark 72 hours on CPAP for Kennedy. This will complete her third day and we are praying for success with this too. Her daily blood gas was wonderful today! I am excited to be able to hold her again tomorrow!
Last night we celebrated another 1st for Drake. He wore his first outfit! He looks so cute in his little preemie clothes. He is starting to catch up with sister. He was 3# 6.5oz this morning and Kennedy was 3# 13oz. Her weight is a little inflated because of the CPAP contraption.
