Babies Situation:

Trinity is already feeling better today. She is as feisty as ever, fighting off the nurses as they try to take her temperature and change her diaper. If you haven’t heard us talk about Trinity, she is full of attitude and all the nurses and respiratory therapists know that if she’s not fighting them during her assessment, then there is probably something wrong. She gets her arms swinging and grabs anything she can get her hands on. She’s pretty good at pulling out her belly tubes and the CPAP attached to her nose. She already gets herself into trouble and she’s only 7 weeks old - ha. The second blood culture hasn’t grown anything out which means her infection is under control. The rate she was given on the CPAP was taken off today and she’s doing great without it. She is back to room air with a pressure of 7. The doctors decided not to start her feedings today since the x-rays showed that her intestines weren’t functioning normally due to her being sick. Hopefully tomorrow!! Kinsley’s report is still uneventful. She has been making the nurses laugh lately. She won’t open her eyes during assessment time but once they are done and she thinks no one is around, she’ll open them. The nurses have caught on to her so they will wait a few minutes and then will check on her to find her wide eyed looking around in her isolate. Andrea, their week day primary night nurse, jokes that she thinks the CPAP tubes is her mobile.

Parent's Thoughts:

It was bath night tonight which we always enjoy!! We soap them up as much as we can, getting behind their little ears, under their chin, and in their arm pits. The best part is that they open up their eyes as wide as they can and look around. Keith actually had Trinity following his hand from one side to the other over her isolate. It was amazing!! At first, we thought she was just looking around but she was actually following his hand. He also spent some quality time with Kinsley as I was giving Trinity her bath. It was cute hearing him talk to her as he sat beside her isolate. They both enjoyed their Daddy’s attention tonight!!

Our Daily Encouragement:

It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.

Psalm 118:8
