KeAnne delivered two beautiful twin baby boys on May 5th. We are so excited! Here is what Pete said in a recent email update:
Friday, May 08, 2009
Well here we are, some 4 days into this little adventure called parenting. Its been a little crazy trying to get everything figured out, as well as get ourselves back on track.
KeAnne will be discharged tomorrow morning, she is healing rapidly, and has very little pain considering the hole they cut into her. She is in excellent spirits, and is very happy to be a mom. She has been trying to feed the boys, but they may still be a little premature to master the whole “suck, swallow and breathe” thing just yet.
The boys are doing very good. They have steadily been increasing their feedings, and decreasing the amount of i.v. fluids they get. They have been receiving photo-therapy for the last couple of days to help control jaundice.
Cooper is taking the increased feedings and photo-therapy a little bit better than his big brother, and if all goes according to the doctors plans, Cooper may be off IV fluids completely by tomorrow. He should also be out from under the lights by the end of today.
Andrew is slowly responding to the photo therapy, but he has been on a lighted blanket, rather than under a spotlight, which seems to me to be the reason he is lagging a little behind. He is also a little behind on the amount they give him at feedings, as he has been a little slower to process his meals. The doctors have reassured us that there is NO reason for concern, which is a huge relief.
There are some new photos here as well.
The weekend looks busy with travels back and forth to and from the hospital, so I will send another update sometime the first of next week.
