Day 72 - September 14, 2007

Last night Liza stayed at the hospital in order to try and give the boys at least one feed overnight. This is the next major step before the boys can come home. They will have to get 100% of their feeds orally. Right now they are still not able to get one complete feed orally but I can report they are getting closer to that important milestone. As the boys get bigger and stronger Liza will begin staying at the hospital overnight. When that time comes she will stay until the boys come home.

Other things that happened today are that they stopped some medications that the boys were taking to help them with their breathing. It would appear that they have outgrown the need for these medications. This is really important as they need to be clear of these medications for a minimum of 7 full days before they can come home. These are more signs that they are indeed going to come home one day soon.

Both boys continue to do well and we are watching them get bigger every day!
