My boys are so CUTE!!!
They were doing really good today.
Benjamin is still on his ventilator. They had hoped to put him on CPAP yesterday but thought it was too soon. They turned down his breathes per minute and his blood gas came back high. They want to wean him off the ventilator slowly by turning down his breathes per minute. We went to visit them tonight and I had my hands on Benjamin's head and feet. This is his favourite thing! He was calm but yet gently kicking against my hand. He put his one hand up above his head and felt my hand. He likes to feel my hand. Well, after a little while I took my hands off him because I wanted to visit with Kyle. He did not like this idea at all. He started crying and squirming. So I put my hands back on him and he immediately fell asleep. After a little while I took my hands off him again and put his teddy from Auntie Ali & Uncle Tim on his feet. He stayed sleeping. Auntie Ali & Uncle Tim's teddy has really come in handy. The nurses use it to prop up his ventilator tubing, calm Benjamin, and for Benjamin to snuggle with.
Kyle was doing amazing today. After only one day on CPAP, he has now been switched to High-Flo. There is only one more step after High-Flo and then he will be breathing totally on his own. What an amazing recovery after surgery! I got to hold Kyle tonight. He was very calm and looking around. He smiles a lot now when myself or Gary talks to him. He really enjoyed being held. It's so much easier now that he is on High-Flo: not as many wires and tubing to worry about. When he went back in the isolette he missed me because he started crying. So I calmed him down before we left.
Anothing exciting thing happened today!!!:) We weren't there for this but Robert told us all about it. Curious now??? Robert took some pictures of it. Kyle went for a visit with Benjamin!!!! Robert put Kyle in Benjamin's isolette. We were told that they both loved it. Kyle had his arm around Benjamin. They were both satting good. Maybe they'll go for another visit pretty soon since they liked it so much.
