I am a planner. I have a plan in place for everything that goes on in our lives. Obviously, nothing with Drake and Kennedy has gone according to my plan; therefore, I'm learning to adjust to the unknown. Some days I feel more adjusted than others, but a great deal of that comes from living in a hospital for the past 116 days. I don't know what our new normal will be once we are able to go home, but we will adjust as a family to whatever that may be.
We're still working on feeds here in Special Care. Drake has been changed to the 1/2 breast milk 1/2 enfamil AR mixture that Kennedy has been taking. This should help with his reflux issues which have become more apparent with the higher volume of feeds. They are both continuing to show steady weight gains each day which is a trend we want to see. Drake's surgery is scheduled for one week from today. It feels like that has snuck up on us rather quickly.
I gave each of them a warm bath this evening and right now our room is very quiet. They always sleep more soundly after a bath and a bottle.
