Really quickly...we did not make it up to the hospital yesterday but the nurses said that the girls were good and behaved themselves. They each worked with therapists but I do not know the exact reports. I do know that Reagan decided that she did NOT want any food through her feeding tube if possible. Yesterday during the day shift she drank 3 out of 4 feedings through a bottle - mostly because she got so mad during the time they tried to gavage (spelling? - it is her feeding tube) feed her she was mad for the entire feed and then the entire 3 hours following! So, they gave in and bottle fed her. Then, she was too worn out last night to care! Reagan is now 3 lbs. 10 oz. and Cameron is now 2 lbs. 14.5 oz. I think that Cameron is tired of playing catch up and is ready to be out of her box, too! She only has a couple hundred more grams to go! Go Cam! Reagan is not gaining as quickly because her body is having to adjust to maintaining its body temp in her bassinnett and she is eating so many feedings orally now - all of those things use up calories. So, I think once her body adjusts, she should resume gaining bigger numbers (hopefully!). That's all for now!
