"Just wanted to send out a fun little update. Both the babes are doing well, they are on their antibiotics, about seven more days they will have on that to take care of their infections. Pray that after this their immune systems will be strong and no more infections.
They are both doing awesome with their feedings! They are now bumped up to 17 ml's every 3 hours! This is the key, the more nutrition the stronger they will become. Jaron's nurse, Cindy (she's awesome I love her) said it is miraculous that they have been doing so well on their feeds, because most preemies, especially as early as they were, just don't tolerate feedings as well. I said they are our little miracles! So praise the Lord that he's made their little "guts" stimulate so well!!
Yesterday they were going to wash Jaron's hair, and since we were there they asked if I would like to wash it. I said of course! I just made a wipe warm and wet, put some shampoo on and just rubbed his head with it.... and Jaron LOVED it! He just closed his eyes and chilled :-) It was so fun. Today I got to hold the little man too.... I am hoping I can hold Teagan again soon. The past 2 days her nurse has said she just needs to relax and settle in her isolate.
Oh yes, their weights, Teagan is 2 lbs. 4 oz, and Jaron is 2 lbs. 6 oz! Can't wait til they hit the 3 pound mark!!
