Thank you all for your continued support, prayers and well wishes.
IT means a lot to me and will always be a part of the memory of the twins birth and NICU journey.
So today was an amazing day!
For the past 2 days I have seen very little of our twins because we were having some child care problems (MIL was not taking proper care of them
) and we were scrambling trying to figure out what to do, we ended up keeping our 2 and 4 year old with us and my mom has our 3 oldest for the next few days. So anyway I walk into the NICU and there is Connor out of the isolate and in an open bed!
He still has a little air being given to him and antibiotics running through a line to him but other than that he is free! It was so neat to see him in clothes and hold him close again.
He took a few ml from a bottle (my breastmilk) so that was even more progress, things are really looking up for him.
Seamus is doing GREAT!
For him we are just waiting for him to put on weight and learn to eat. Speaking of which I have been promised what feels like a million times but tonight I actually was able to put Seamus to the breast for the first time!
He didnt nurse but it was so special. At some point I realized we were in the lactation room alone and I realized that it was the FIRST time for me to be alone with either of my boys I cried great big tears of joy and poor little man just looked up at me like I had lost my mind.
It was so sweet.
The testing on the placenta came back and it is official, the boys are identical!
We had thought they probably were but it was neat to have genetic "official" proof of it.
So that is my great news for the day, well that and I now pump around 8oz at a setting! What the heck am I going to do with all this milk???
