We missed the rounds today for only the second time. We don't like to miss them as they are an opportunity to ask all of the doctors, respiratory techs, dieticians, etc a question and have it answered. But we had a good excuse. We decided to go to Church and do a little extra praying for the kids...I think it's working so please everyone KEEP PRAYING and thinking of Ciaran and Shay. All the good vibes are helping them out a lot!
We arrived today around 12:30pm and went to see them. Ciaran is back under the light, still has a bit of trouble with his tummy (they think) but he is honestly looking better every day! he is eating like a bird still but that's ok, they are just being cautious so he doesn't have any more setbacks. Shay is still steady as he has been to this point. He is not eating 100% of the food they are feeding him so they are just going to back him off a bit until his tummy and gut gets used to digesting. Both are doing well in terms of being on the ventilation and Ciaran will get his 'pick' line today hopefully. This is the 'permanent' IV that helps reduce risk of infection, etc and it is more difficult for him to pull on. They are surprising strong for such little guys! The doctor on staff today is Irish from Dublin so it was definitely interesting to hear her accent.
Not much else to say at this post... the ships are sailing on a steady course and that is always a good thing.
Thanks for the comments on the last post, please keep them coming as we love to hear from you all.
ps Cris will get pictures on site by tomorrow - if he doesn't, he will be in big trouble!
