So I just got off the phone with our nurses and they seemed like everything was going fine with the babies. That's probably because they're asleep. Reagan's nurse said she was sleeping very peacefully. She didn't have the test results back in for her yet, so we'll have to wait a little longer to see what's going on with her reflux. Cameron's nurse said she was doing fine. She took 10 cc's of milk from the bottle and had to be fed the rest through the "nose-tube." Hopefully we can get more consistant and larger bottle feeds. They told me that a good goal is for them to consistantly drink 30 cc's, which is one ounce, at each feed without any problems (bradys, desats). Cameron got 30 once, and Reagan, of course has had more success. They upped Cameron's feeds to 40 cc's today...I think that means 40 cc's every 4 hours. But the biggest heart jolt for me was when I asked their nurse how long she thought it'd be until they came home. "Reagan will definately go home before Cameron, but it might be 2 weeks until Reagan goes home," she said. WOW! 2 WEEKS! I can't wait. I bet they're ready too.
