A New Day

One day at a time.  I'm glad that yesterday is behind us, although Wednesdays may be rough with the weekly head ultrasounds until things stabilize.  Today was much better :)

I was able to meet with another micropreemie mommy who has been through many of the same issues, and it was such an encouragement to see how well her beautiful kids are doing.

William is now also on the nasal cannula, but for different reasons than his brother.  The CPAP just wouldn't stay on.  It's really awesome that they're both already on the cannula and that everything else looks good right now.  They're both getting some of my milk, and hopefully they will keep getting more and more (we already need a new freezer to store what I have so far, so they better start taking more! :) ) 

We had cuddle time with both boys today, as we will continue to do every day.  The best things we can do to help with their brain development are skin-to-skin contact, talking and reading to them, and giving them my milk.  We will do whatever it takes to give them the best possible outcome.  And they are super cute!

Keeping this one short today, as sleep is much needed.

Thanks again for all of the love and support!
