He is doing very well. He's still taking a little oxygen through a canula (nose prongs) His feedings are going very well, he is up to 7cc of milk tonight.
We also got to take his temperature and change his diaper tonight. He squirmed and fussed as Donna took his temp. It was just under his arm, but he didn't want to keep his arm down and he told her about it. He also screamed for me as I tried to change his diaper. It ended up taking both if us to do it. He's so tiny, you feel like you are going to break him and he throws his legs all over the place when you are trying to get the new diaper on, lol. I'm sure we will get plenty of practice before the boys get to leave here!!!

Caden is doing well also. He still needs no assistance with breathing and he is also getting 7cc at his feedings.
He is jaundice however and had to go on light therapy today. They tell us it is very normal for preemies and he may be on the light for a day or two and come off... he may have to go back on again. It's just a thing with preemies :) He is very cute as a glow worm though...
|The light pack goes directly on him under his clothes or blanket|
Garren is doing good too. He is still on oxygen through a canula (nose prongs) & he is also doing very well with feedings.
We haven't got to hold him yet, but we will see about that tomorrow.
We feel so awful about him being all the way at the other end of NICU away from his brothers, who are together :( The nurses said they are working on moving him closer, but it may take some time...
