Steady as she goes...

So far so good this week. The girls have been doing well, aside from the occasional brady from Evelyn. She still seems to be having problems with reflux during her feeds. The good news is that she was fine while we were visiting Tuesday afternoon. Part of that may be due to the fact that both girls are getting some changes made to their feeds. The total volume that they are getting is being reduced, however their feeds are being supplemented with a calorie rich compound. The net result is that while the girls are getting less food overall, they end up getting more calories.

Both girls are starting to show signs of being able to regulate their own body temperature. The nurses are talking about turning off the heaters in their isolets. This would be a big step, as it is one of the requirements for them to move out of the isolets and into bassinets.
