Still in the NICU - now with Apnea Issues

So in the past few days, Liam has decided to try a new way to get Mommy attention (at least that's my attempt at a joke). Liam's been having heart rate decelerations and stopping his breathing. They put him back on oxygen with the canula two days ago for this and yesterday he was still doing it, so they decided to give him caffeine to keep away the apnea issues. I'm trying not to freak out about it, but the doctor talked to me about it, and I hadn't had any questions, as he hadn't done it since yesterday afternoon. About an hour after I talked to the doctor, he started doing it again. I'm interested to see what's going on tomorrow and what our next steps are.

Other than that, they are both doing well. Liam is back to his full birth weight of 4 lbs 1 oz and Tommy is now a little more than his birth weight at 4 lbs even. Tommy's feeds are still at 36 ml but Liam's are now up to 25 ml. Apparently 36 ml is the full feed for the weight they are at. So they need to keep bulking up their weight and work on not needing any help heating their bodies. Next weigh in is tomorrow night.

Other than that on the getting organized front, I went to the grocery store yesterday evening, the HVAC guy came this morning to do the annual maintenance on the air conditioning, my car is going in for it's overdue maintenance tomorrow morning and Thursday morning I'm getting my hair colored. I can't wait until I can get rid of my roots!

You are so organized and pro active! I think I would have just sat and watched the babies. Hope all goes better by today.
