The babies continue to progress! They increased their feeds yesterday to:
Val – 18ml feeds
Jaina – 17ml feeds
Jacen – 21ml feeds
With the anticipation of raising again today. The goal is “full-feeds” where we take out the IV fluids and they eat 160ml/kg weight/day. Right now they’re at about half of that, which is excellent! They also get one bottle feed a day now, which is huge!
Their weights are:
Jacen: 4 lbs 7 oz
Jaina: 4 lbs 2 oz
Valerie: 4 lbs 0 oz
Jacen ripped yet another IV out yesterday, but they said they’d give him today to see how he does, since they are hoping to get rid of the IVs tomorrow anyways!
We’re loving every minute with them, and its so much fun to watch!
Today we’re going to take a midday break and go see Cars 2 with the big brother. It’s hard to leave, but they are in very capable hands, and until we can do more we mostly just sit and stare anyways :).
