I love the weekends when we are able to start off our days as a complete family. Sunday's are bittersweet because the beginning of a new week means Brian has to head out, but at least we made the most of our morning. Brian and I completed our CPR training and then he got some snuggle time in with Drake and Kennedy before he had to leave.
Brian was even able to be here when they came to do Kennedy's hearing screening. They explained that while she was sleeping the machine would play a series of soft noises and it would monitor her brain activity. Once she was hooked up to all of the monitors, the screener told us it could take about 20 minutes. We prepared ourselves to wait, but within less than a few minutes she was finished with 100% in both ears. We even have a certificate!
After meeting with their doctor today, we have a plan for both Drake and Kennedy. Drake is borderline with getting the G-Tube. We are not against him getting it, but if he does not have to have it, we would rather him not. Because of this, they are pushing his surgery back a week. This will give us more time to see if he can handle full feeds. If after this week the doctors advise us to get the G-Tube, then we will get it. He is already having his hernias repaired along with his circumcision so if we need to add in a G-Tube, this would be the time to do it. Since his surgery is being postponed, both he and Kennedy will receive their 4 month vaccinations this week. They will be spread out over 3 days beginning on Wednesday.
Aunt Meredith and Uncle Aaron brought Kennedy's carseat up today for her carseat test. After she completes the carseat test and vaccinations, she will be ready to go home this weekend (at least to Gran & Poppy's). Wow! After 4 months in the hospital, she will finally be ready to leave with us. Then we will really be counting down the days for Drake to join us.
