Early this morning, Special Care told me that Drake would be joining us today. As excited as I was to hear this, I was skeptical. I headed over to confirm this glorious rumor with the NICU and his doctor. To my surprise, confirmation was made...he would be joining us and we would be moving into a twin room; however, we would have to wait for the triplets to move out and the room to be cleaned first. My mom and I patiently waited and spent a typical day going back and forth between Special Care and the NICU. Around 7pm Drake was moved over to Special Care and he was moved into our small room because the larger twin room was not yet ready. Crowded would be an understatement for our small room with two babies and their accoutrements, but we were just happy to all be together. Around 9pm we were ready for the move to our larger twin room. This was like moving from a small hotel room to a luxury suite. We have only been together for a few hours at this point, but I am loving it! The only way to make it better will be having Brian here this weekend to join us.
Kennedy took a bottle this morning with the occupational therapist, part of a bottle with me at 3pm, and another entire bottle with me at 9pm. She is doing so good with her bottles, and I hope Drake does well when he begins. He will be giving drinking out of a bottle a try later this week. Their doctor made a change to their feedings today. Instead of adding fortifier, they will be adding Enfamil AR. This should help with the reflux issues that Kennedy has been having.
It has been a very long day, and I am ready for our first night together in our own room. Twice the bells and twice the alarms but very well worth it. I'm going to try my best to get a little bit of sleep, and I am praying for a smooth first night together.
