Mid-week Update

We don't really have any huge news for this update, but we know some of you get worried when we don't post and we don't want to be the cause for anyone's anxeity! Don't worry, everything is still going well.

Evelyn is now up to 4 lbs 6 ozs. She has been increased to feeding by bottle every other feed. So far she has been taking about half her volume. But, tonight's nurse just reported that she took all but 2 mLs at her 9:00 feeding! She's working hard to catch up with her little sister.

Jessica is 4 lbs 3 ozs. Jessica is now being allowed to bottle feed every meal, if she's up to it. Right now she's taking about half of her volume for most feeds, occasionally taking the entire feed or needing to rest and being fed via the feeding tube. It takes a little while for babies to increase their stamina to take their entire feed every time. Hopefully she'll be eating everything by bottle soon...then we'll be that much closer to bringing her home!
