Two Weeks Old

Hi Everyone!
They are now 2 weeks old. My how time flies! I'm feeling great, just a sore back, but doing well. Sarah was moved up to the 3rd floor today which is a step up. She is doing great. She is eating 23ml of breastmilk every three hours and acts just like a full term baby, but looks like a baby doll. It is so surreal! Right now she weighs 2lbs. 91/2oz. Luke, who was doing so well, now has an infection, but seems to be fighting it off extremely well and his cultures keep coming back great. We just have to keep an eye on him and wait and see. He's a big boy! I know he'll pull through.They do have him on a vapotherm for now just to give him a little extra oxygen. They stopped his feeds for a while and put him back on an IV, but now they have started feeding him again 1ml of breastmilk every three hours. He weighs 3lbs. 41/2oz. Ava is doing much better. Earlier in the week, she was on a respirator still and she pulled it out herself not once, but twice. The doct or then decided that maybe she wanted to breathe on her own and put her on the vapotherm with a small amount of oxygen, and she has been doing wonderful with it! They also started giving her small feeds. She is eating 1ml of breastmilk every 3 hours. Ava now weighs 3lbs. 1/2 oz. Lily is doing exceptionally well. She has caught up to Sarah! She is eating 22ml of breastmilk every three hours and is doing great. She weighs 2lbs. 13oz.
