No More Oxygen

Nov 26 2011

Some great news today – Sophia ditched her oxygen!  Both of the kids are doing really well today.  Cameron’s still working on his calorie-boosted 25mL feedings.  Sophia’s doing pretty well with her feedings (but still has a ways to go there).  Now that Sophia made it past the oxygen hurdle, I’m guessing other “systems” will start to quickly follow.

Their playpens are now quite a bit closer together.  If we both hold the kids now, they’re only a few feet apart.  That close, we were able to really compare them for the first time.  When I compared them across the room before and when I looked at their pictures, I always thought Sophia was much smaller than Cameron.  They’re actually extremely close in size.  Cameron’s face is a little taller & thinner than Sophia’s, but not by much.  One day soon (well, “soon” in the grand scheme of things), we’ll have them home sleeping in the same crib.

Cameron had a swollen tummy after one of his feedings today.  To make sure everything was ok, he got a visit from the giant X-ray monster again.  His tummy X-ray results were great, so his feedings continued tonight.  Here’s the X-ray monster swooping in on Cameron’s playpen…

I did some serious hogging of the baby hold times today.  To make sure I could keep Cameron for a long time, I hid him under my shirt.  Here’s Cameron screaming for help…

Sophia has a nose!  Here’s proof…

WHY IS THIS FEED TUBE STILL HERE! MAKE IT GO AWAAAYYYY!!!!!

UGGGH! MY SISTER WON’T STOP COMPLAINING ABOUT HER TUBES!!!
