Day 13 - Tuesday, July 17, 2007

Good day everyone,

Today started off pretty early, around 5:30am, when Liza was doing her pumping thing. We called the hospital to get an update on how the boys were doing and it seems they had a pretty uneventful day except for one thing: Ciaran got tired of his oral ventilation tube and so he did what anyone would - HE PULLED IT OUT OF HIS MOUTH!! Let's just say that this would be a serious thing if it were not for the amazing nurses and respiratory techs at the hospital. They basically hand ventilated him for a few minutes until they got a new tube in, this time in his nose where it is not likely to be removed by an active baby!

Not much else to report otherwise. Ciaran is slightly above his birth weight now and is having a very nice day with the ventilation. Shay has still been quite good (he is at birth weight again) but he has had a few swings in terms of ventilation but overall pretty good! I hope you enjoyed the pics and I'll post more soon.

Thanks for reading,

Hey guys,

First of all - that wrinkled butt is the cutest thing I've ever seen in my life! Secondly - we all kept saying Ciaran was a typical Sneyd. Fiesty as they come!

Love you guys!
