The Pediatric Surgeon called today and scheduled Drake's hernia repairs and circumcision. The date is set for two weeks from today on October 24th. Of course the date can be rescheduled if he is not ready, but we are down on the books. It's hard to believe our little man could be ready for this and then...coming home.
They are both working on their feeds and this is just something that takes time with preemies. I had two fussy babies on my hands this afternoon and I was extremely grateful to have my mom here to help. Drake and Kennedy love being held by their Gran! My immediate reaction to them being fussy is worry. I worry there is something terribly wrong and we will end up back in the NICU. Luckily, my Special Care nurses have reassured me that this is not the case...they are simply acting like normal full term babies.
