Our visit with our precious children went well today. The nurses for each of the 4 are so informative and take the time to answer our questions. Sometimes the babies have the same night and or day nurse and other times they are different. We were told we can ask for primary care nurses. Its good to have primary care nurses as they get acquainted and bond with the babies. Its nice to have consistency with the care the nurses give them. We have requested some of the nurses to be primary care nurses. I'm sure as we get to know more of the nurses we will request more.
Each week the neonatologists rotate and this week its Dr. Jarriel. He's nice and explains things to us in a way we can understand. So far the neonatologist in the group have been nice.
The babies are still continuing on and making small progress. The doctor is trying to wean the vent settings down a bit and are watching out for when they can start feeds with breast milk. We are still waiting to see Haley's, Braden's and Rachel's eyes open. I was given a lock of Rachel's hair tonight. They had to shave a little off her head for a peripheral line. Her hair is dark like Thomas's. Thursday the the doctor will do a follow up ultrasound of their brains/head to see if the bleeding has improved or gotten worse. We hope and pray to hear that they have gotten better not worse.
We were told we could put a stuffed animal in each of their isolates. So we went and bought some cute teddy bears for them. Hopefully they will enjoy them.
