The Big Weigh In
August is 3 pounds 14 oz and 16 1/2 inches long.
Luke is 3 pounds 10 oz and 17 inches long.
Henry is 3 pounds 7 oz and 15 1/4 inches long.
The boys had their first eye exams today. Because they're on oxygen there is the chance of damage to their retina and therefore exams are scheduled around 32 weeks. The boys will be 33 weeks this Wednesday. All of their exams were within normal limits. They'll have another exam in two weeks and we're hoping for more of the same.
The bigger news today was that August is now on a canula. The canula is a nasal prong that provides oxygen. I absolutely couldn't believe it when I walked into the nursery today to see August, the baby with the worst lungs at birth, on a canula. During the time I was at the hospital August did really well on the canula. At 34 weeks the babies can start bottle/breast feeding. So, if August does well on the canula, he could possibly not need his feeding tube as early as next week. This is super exciting and we're feeling very hopeful.
