The Girls Are Sharing Already!

So, today they moved the girls into a room together. They had only been around the corner from each other in the NICU, but now they are sharing a room. Their little isolettes are now right next to one another. Sydney is on the left and Olivia is on the right.

The girls were also a little jaundiced, so they are getting photo-therapy with bili-lights. It looks kinda like a mini tanning bed... :)

As for their status, things are going well. Olivia, who initially needed some extra help breathing, has made huge improvements. Her breathing tube was removed late last night and is now on a CPAP like Sydney. Sydney, was given the same meds that Olivia received, but a few hours later and is still getting some extra oxygen. They will soon be on room air (the same thing you and I breathe).

In addition to me, the girls got their first visitors today at Children's. Grandma Sharon & Grandpa Rick got to see them up close for the first time.

The girls aren't really eating yet (getting any feedings) but hopefully soon Jeni will be providing them some milk. I plan on being a modern day milk shuttle service with what the folks in the NICU call "Liquid Gold".
