Colby and Avery both had good days yesterday. Colby was more active. Looking about a lot. He is still medicated, but they're trying to ween him off the pain meds little by little. Avery was doing better as well. Her new breathing tube seems to be doing the trick as her oxygen saturation has been much better.
The doctors will now be monitoring Avery's head circumference to watch her hydrocephalus.
But this is all part of the experience. Many of my clients have been up to speed with Tracey's and I's pregnancy. I tell them that although we didn't want to be in this situation and we didn't ask to be here....we're here none the less and we just need to make the best of it. That's all we can do. Everything the babies are going through are "normal" preemie issues. We have two so we have twice the chance of experiencing things. I've read stories of preemies who by this time (2 1/2 weeks old) aren't doing well or have had very serious problems. All in all, Colby and Avery are doing awesome !!!
I'm hoping to snap a couple pictures today. Here's one of Tracey and Avery from the day she held her.
