Two Weeks Old!

The boys are two weeks old today!  It feels like the time has flown by, but at the same time that a year has passed since I had them. 

The isolettes have been moved next to each other now, which is good.  They were across the aisle from each other.  It's still not super convenient, as they are too far apart to hold both at once or even to read to both at once, but now we have one home base between the beds.  Hopefully they will move them a bit closer at some point, so that we can read to/hold both at once. 

Aaron is still progressing nicely, and has gone up to 6ccs of milk every three hours.  He may completely move off of the nasal cannula within the week.  He had some good cuddle time in with daddy today :)  He is too small to get an MRI, which would not be warm enough for him, but he did get a repeat head ultrasound this morning.  He's had no changes that would result in any further action at this point, which is good.

William is back on his 10ccs of milk after stopping for the night for his transfusion.  He's fine, but did have another very scary spell while I was sitting with him today.  I'll spare the details, but it did make me realize just how fragile they are, and appreciate that they are where they need to be.  He is also back on CPAP for now...breathing is a good thing.

I've been really looking forward to the boys moving to MRMC to be closer to home.  It turns out that if they need any type of neurosurgery, which is a possibility for both, they would have to stay at St. Mary's the whole time :(  Let's keep praying that they won't need anything!

Here are pictures of the cuties from yesterday:
