Benjamin was doing good today. He is down to 33 breaths per minute and his gases are still stable. They are going to try him on CPAP on Wednesday if all goes well. He was wide-awake most of the time I was there today. He kept trying to move. I think he misses his froggy bean bag; he peed all over it yesterday so it is in the hospital laundry right now. He loves to suck on his soother. I also had to hum “You are my Sunshine” to him and then he calmed down. However, when I stopped he woke up again. I guess he likes being hummed to. He still weighs 1490 grams.
Kyle nicely slept when I was holding him. Then he started desatting because he had his tongue on the roof of his mouth. I tried to get him to move it but he is a stubborn little guy. He gets that from his Daddy of course. Finally, he moved it and then started satting good. He went back in his isolette after an hour and slept most of the time after that. He woke up when I came back from spending time with Benjamin. He started lifting his whole body off the mattress. He also pushed himself up to the front of the isolette. He is now up to 1545 grams.
As to when they are to come home- we don't really know right now. They still have a long way to go but we expect them the beginning or middle of June.
Also, here are the videos as promised. This is especially for our cousin Joshua as he likes to watch the old videos. Joshua, here are some updated ones for you. We can't wait until we're old enough that you can teach us to play hockey.
