Happy 2 months to Rhys!


Well today Rhys is 2 months old! We can't believe it has been 2 months. On one hand it seems just like yesterday the twins were born, but on the other hand, we can't remember what life used to be like. Rhys had a good day today and is resting comfortably. He got to kangaroo with daddy today and he was out like a light! No issues with de-satting today he has been fairly consistent with his oxygen requirements. The doctors mentioned increasing the amount of calories in his milk instead increasing the amount of milk he gets each serving to try and pack on more weight. They don't want to give him any more volume but he needs more calories to meet his weight gain goals of 30-60 grams per day. Currently he is at about 20 grams per day. He is starting to get a little bit hot inside the isolette and the nurses are thinking he may go to an open crib soon. He can regulate his own body temperature a little better now and doesn't need the heat from the isolette. We are both excited that he can change beds, but we are nervous about him being out in the open and exposed to potential infections and other baddies in the air.
