I am pleased to have had a calm day here in the NICU with both babies coasting along. They are 37 weeks gestationally today. It is hard to believe they are still not supposed to be born yet. With that considered, they are both doing quite well.
Drake's morning blood gas was much better today and he has been very comfortable all day. He received his last dose of antibiotic through injection, and we are happy to have those behind us. He will start back on bactrim tomorrow as a preventative for future UTIs. Tomorrow will complete his 72hours back on CPAP, and I will be able to hold him again! I can't wait! As of last night, Drake passed Kennedy in weight by 4oz.
Kennedy did a great job with her bottle this afternoon. At noon she drank 30mL of her 48mL, and she was exhausted when she finished. Having my sweet baby girl sound asleep on me after her bottle was the best feeling in the world. The only way to make it better would be to hold Drake, too. Tonight she finished her entire bottle, and she did it with no bradys. Wow! Two bottles in one day is quite impressive for such a little girl.
