Well, I’m finally getting around to updating you all. It’s been both a bad and a good week. The week started out a little rough as another little one in the nursery passed away. It was very hard for me. But things got better.
Yesterday Benjamin got switched to regular CPAP. He is doing very well on it. He was wide-awake yesterday for a lot of the time I was there. He got switched to feeding every 3 hours now. He weighs 1630 grams. He’s just about ready to go in a crib (1800 grams).
Kyle had a very exciting day yesterday. He came out of his isolette and has graduated to a crib. He actually wasn’t 1800 grams yet but the doctor said he could go in a crib. I think they wanted to snag the last crib so that the boys could go together in a bit:) He looks so tiny in a crib all bundled under a lot of blankets. He was a bit cool so they had a lot of blankets on him until he can regulate his own temperature. He was so tired from the move and slept a lot of the day.
I got to hold Benjamin and Kyle at the same time yesterday. The nurse positioned them on a nursing pillow. She put them on there a bit apart and Benjamin just wiggled his way so he was almost on top of his brother. Kyle was asleep and Benjamin was wide-awake. Benjamin kept moving his head and hitting his brother with the CPAP. He was trying to say “Wake up, brother. I’m here now. Come on, wake up.” It was so cute to watch. Kyle just kept on sleeping. Finally Benjamin gave up and went to sleep himself.
Kyle's new home. I still have to make it look more homey by bringing a mobile to put on the crib.
Kyle under all his blankets.
The boys- Benjamin & Kyle
