A few notes on the babies
I was able to kangaroo hold (skin to skin) Jakob and Jaileigh on the first day
We have been able to bathe Jaileigh and Michael
We have been able to change all diapers
All babies were intubated except Jaileigh
All babies were extubated by the end of their first day except Anthony
All babies are on lights for bilirubin
All babies are on room air except Anthony
The second day I was able to hold Jaileigh because she was the only one not on lights
Mom and Dad are still holding up. I am finally getting sore. I was on an adrenaline rush for awhile and didn't feel pain, it was sooooo nice too.
We would ask all of you to give us some recovery time. I know everyone wants to visit but we are trying to spend as much time in the NICU as possible right now. I have changed rooms and no longer have cell phone service either. The best way to keep updated is the blog or leave messages and we will try to get back to you. We really appreciate all the calls and visits but are feeling overwhelmed at this time. Thank you again for all that you have done. We look forward to visiting you soon. Keep the comments coming, we really read all of them.
