Not much to report for today. We arrived at the hospital in the afternoon for probably the first time since the kids were born. This is a combination of being tired and feeling a bit better about everything. Being at the NICU is a surreal experience and its easy to have a less than positive outlook. We have done well keeping things together and always looking for positives even when we don't get the best news. Our kids are getting stronger every day and it shows in the decreased frequency of the alarms going off and other things. They NICU staff are striving to normalize the kids and both Ciaran and Shay are handling every little change beautifully so far.
Today we swapped kids for our kangaroo care. Ciaran was with Liza and Shay was with me. We had them out for 2 hours and today I got to hold both of them. Now this was an unexpected but amazing event!!!!!
Tomorrow is back to work and Liza will be back at the hospital during the day. No doubt she will get to hold both Ciaran and Shay.
Good night and thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers,
Cris, Liza, Ciaran and Shay
