Cohen had his mustache shaved yesterday. We can now see his whole face as they removed his feeding tube because he is now suckin down all 8 bottles. The plan is to bring him home in the next week or two!! Can you believe it?Finn is off oxygen now but has still had a few "episodes", but nothing major like this past weekend. He is doing better maintaining his body temp and is now slurpin down 6 bottles - Wow!
Sophia is also rockin! She is kickin back all 8 bottles per day now! I think the wink is proof that she knows she's got me in the palm of her little hand. That's ok...I love it!
Noah is now on constant feeds through the ostomy that is the lower section of the small intestine. They feed him 1.7 mL of milk over the span of an hour every hour! What an awesome miracle that he is moving so fast and doing so well! The tentative plan is do his 2nd surgery to re-connect the intestines in about 6 weeks, depending of course on how he is doing.
We are hoping that when we get to the NICU today, that Cohen, Sophia and Finn are re-united. They plan to put them in the same crib today! This is going to be sweet.
Mari had her 2-week follow-up with Dr. Cook. She is doing very well and has such a great attitude. I have to take a moment to brag on Dr. Cook. He has been so amazing through all of this. There a lot of good doctors but he has really shown great compassion. He calls the NICU almost daily to check on the babies - he really does care - such a great heart and mind! We are going to start working on another baby soon just so we can continue to see Dr. Cook:) http://www.theobgyncenter.com/
We have received so many awesome gifts, including a hand-made stork (some real feathers) carrying 4 babies made by an artist in Lompoc, CA. We are working on getting thank-yous out soon, but please accept our deepest appreciation for your generosity!
