Drake is still on antibiotics; however, since they have been having difficulties with IVs, they have changed from intervenious ampicillin to injections of rocephin. The good news is that the injections are only one time per day. He took a little field trip today for his VCUG test. The verdict is in...all systems are go. He does not have urinary reflux. While this is good news, it does not tells why he continues to get UTIs. Our doctors here are consulting with a nephrologist at Medical City about what precautionary measures should be taken. He did great on his trip!
Kennedy is so much fun to watch! With her face free of tubing and wires, she makes the cutest expressions. When she is awake...she is WIDE awake, and she constantly takes in all of her surroundings. I was able to give her a bottle again today, and did really well by taking 10mL. She had one brady (heart rate drop). She is still in a learning process so we are taking baby steps. She is also used to a prolonged feeding of her 44mL over an hour and a half. Taking 10mL in a short time is an adjustment for her little stomach. She is getting closer to the 5# mark! She weighed in tonight at 4# 15oz and brother is right behind her at 4# 13oz. They are getting so big!
