Babies Situation:

We are still working on feedings with the Girls. Trinity is averaging out at around 45 cc’s each feeding with is a huge improvement. It seems as if the new formula is working. Kinsley is doing just OK. It is almost like she is digressing with hers and now it is a pure fight to get her to take her minimum of 50 cc’s. We also found out that the doctor ordered to put Kinsley's feeding tube back in every 3rd feed which means they pull it out afterwards. We did not like the idea of that at all and asked the doctor on call today to allow for a permanent tube through her nose. She now has one again just like Trinity.


Parent's Thoughts:

Keith and I really struggled with Kinsley’s tube situation today. Unfortunately, we were there for one of her tube feedings and it was awful. Keith left the room but I got to experience her gagging as Crystal inserted the tube into her mouth and down her throat. She actually gagged for the next 5-10 minutes as we talked with the doctor on how we wanted the tube to remain in her nose. Thankfully, he agreed. It was very hard to sit there as she gagged on her tube and kept moving her tongue around it. It was gut wrenching.

Our Daily Encouragement:

Christ was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake. Through him you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and glorified him, and so your faith and hope are in God.

1 Peter 1:20-21
