After giving it his best effort, it was decided this morning that Drake was working too hard and needed the extra support of CPAP. We are not discouraged because we know just like his sister, he will get it on the next try. Luckily, his daddy got up early and was able to hold him before the change was made. Now we are on the 72 hour wait again until he can be held. I'm extremely glad that the cannula try took place while Brian was here so that he could see Drake's handsome little face. He is continuing on his 14 days of antibiotics to treat the e-coli infection in his urinary tract. These antibiotics are given intravenously through an IV. Each IV only lasts for a couple of days; therefore, the hardest part as his parents is having to see him endure yet another poke.
Kennedy is doing great! Brian was able to experience the joy of picking her up on his own from her crib. This was a very special moment and I am glad that I was able to witness it and capture it with a picture. Every day with our babies is a blessing and even though we still have a ways to go we are thankful for how far they have come.
We are also thankful for our wonderful friends back home in Tyler who put together a benefit today for Drake and Kennedy. We really do have the best support system with our friends and family. Thank you!
