One of the weekly tests run on all NICU babies showed that Kennedy tested positive for MRSA. It is colonized but not infected; therefore, she does not require antibiotics. Apparently, 30% of the population has this bacteria on their body and the doctors and nurses tell me not to worry. Not to worry....after what we have already been through...that is impossible!
The main thing to focus on is that Kennedy is doing really well on CPAP and does not show signs of an infection. At this rate, she will be ready for cannula next week! Oh, she passed the 4# mark today! 4# 1oz.
Drake is also still doing well. He weighs 3# 9oz. Since we are taking it one day at a time, we are thankful for a good day today and I will try not to worry about tomorrow. Notice I said, try.
