Last night I got home from the NICU after 9:00 and didn't have the energy to post. It was the second night up there without Greta, so I fed all three of the babies by bottle. Lukas had a slightly harder time vs. the night before. He started off really strong, but then would spit back out everything he took in. Gabbie came very close to finishing her bottle, but left a couple of cc's behind. Niklas finished about half of his bottle (about 20cc's) which is double what he did the night before. The results of Niklas's brain scan were also better showing an overall improvement in the ventricles, but a slight increase in size (3.3 cm to 3.6 cm). However, I was told that this increase in size was not an apples to apples comparison and there really wasn't an increase. His last scan was taken right after they did the daily tap of his reservoir (removal of fluid), while this one was done right before. Hopefully Greta starts feeling better soon so that she can visit the babies. The top picture here is of Niklas, Gabriella is in the middle with Lukas on the bottom. I have also updated flickr and separated the newer photos from the older. Click on the flickr badge on the left side of the page to see them.
