It's already been 2 weeks since these little guys have been born, and today was another pretty good day. When I arrived at the NICU, there was a little sign on the side of Lukas's isolette that read "Welcome Lukas Myers to the 2lb club" and had stickers all over it like it was something that he brought home from school. That means this guy has gained a little over 1/4 lb, which in relationship to his total size is a pretty nice chunk considering he lost weight initially. Niklas had another day of status quo, and although we would like to see some improvement, holding steady is not too bad. Also, Gabbie and Lukas each spent some time off of the C-PAP and on nasal cannula. Nasal cannula is oxygen through the plastic tube with prongs that go in the nose. It is the final step before they are on regular room air. This step isn't done at once, they will gradually spend more and more time off of the C-PAP. Niklas is still on the oscillator, and is finally comfortable and has stopped trying to fight it. His chest tube also came out tonight since his nemothorax has healed up. His lungs still have a ways to go to heal, and its not going to happen overnight. Greta got to do Kangaroo Care with Lukas and Gabbie, and after work today I also got to take a turn with Gabbie. It really is such an awesome feeling and takes the stress of all of this away. The top picture is of our little fighter Niklas, finally asleep and peaceful. The middle picutre is of Lukas in a weird sleeping position. He was really playing with his hands before this and looked like he was figuring out how his fingers work. The bottom one is of Greta and Gabbie doing Kangaroo Care.
