Babies Situation:

The Girls were seen by both their speech and occupational therapists today. Their feeding are going a slight bit better but there is plenty of room for improvement. There muscle tone is also looking good but the therapist did ask for Kinsley to be put on her right side when resting. Her right foot still turns out which is due to her knee and hip turning out. If she lies on her right side, it will align her hip and knee which in turn aligns her foot/ankle. Both Girls also had labs done this morning and everything looks OK. Trinity did have high blood pressure this morning so the doctor asked for her blood pressure to be taken twice a day to see if there is an issue there. Both Girls gained more weight today. Trinity is 5 lbs 8 oz while Kinsley is 5 lbs 15 oz. Wow!!

Parent's Thoughts:

Keith got to spend the evening with the Girls tonight as I rested and got caught up on some stuff around the house. He was able to hold both of them at the same time (good practice for when they get home). We joke about him getting to watch a lot of sports, if he holds the babies during it. He says he likes that idea. He also got to feed Kinsley. She took 41 cc’s for him which is awesome. I only got her to take 12 cc’s for me today. She had her lips pierced shut and there was no way she was going to let me put a bottle in her mouth. It was cute (but frustrating). I had to repeat the word “patience” in my head and convince myself that this was just spending quality time together, not trying to get her to feed - ha.

Our Daily Encouragement:

May the god of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope.

Romans 15:13
