Gabi in one of her awake moments:
Lily, finally free of the cannula!
Lily was taken off the cannula, and later the IV, on Tuesday morning. She's so much more comfortable now!
Tuesday night their levels were finally high enough to put them under the bili lights. I think they'll be so much more alert and interested in feeding once their bilirubin levels have been lowered. We'll find out sometime today how long they need to be under the lights, but it's usually at least 24 hours according to the nurse.
And finally, Tuesday I was so tired, and every time I'd hold one baby she'd fall asleep on me and then the other would cry. Then I'd put the sleeping one down and pick up the other baby. She'd fall asleep and then the other would cry. This was my solution:
That's Gabi on the left and Lily on the right.
I only have a moment with wifi this morning in the cafe at the hospital, so I couldn't do much, but I HAD to share this with you:
Finally they're together again. They've been in separate bassinets pretty much since being out of my tummy. I think they're going to love sharing a bed soon!
