Wow, it’s been four months since the boys were born. It seems like it’s been forever.
Today we found out that Benjamin has a blockage in one of the ventricles in his brain. He is being transferred to Children’s sometime tonight or tomorrow for a consultation with a neurologist. He either needs a shunt put in or he will have to have the fluid drained. We are both very scared right now, as brain surgery doesn’t sound too appealing. Right now it seems like everything is happening to Benjamin. Everything that can go wrong with preemies, it seems, has happened to him. We are really struggling with this right now. On the positive side, Dr. Lam came today and checked his eyes and they are very good.
Kyle is doing good. He was very cranky last night during the night shift and his nurse had to walk with him for a while. He was a sleepyhead today- probably since he didn’t sleep most of the night. They have switched him to on demand feeding now without letting him go past four hours. He did take a whole bottle today so that was great. His eyes got checked today as well and Benjamin’s eyes are actually better than Kyle’s. However, Kyle does not need surgery right now.
