Another step back...

Well, the girlies may have moved over to the other side of the NICU, but they have made it very clear that they still would like some extra attention. Makenna and Lauren have both been displaying some tummy/intenstinal issues and their feeds were stopped. They are on antibiotics, back on iv nutrition, and getting daily x-rays to see how their tummies are doing. As of yesterday Makenna and Olivia were both given blood to help their oxygen saturation. Livy seems to be doing well on feedings, though she is having some reflux issues. Still, while her bowels and tummy look good, she will continue to feed. She was up to 3lbs 9oz yesterday, so she is gaining very well!!! Hopefully the cultures on Makenna and Lauren won't show a bad infection and they will be able to resume feeds in the next few days. The only nice part about them not feeding at the moment is that their feeding tubes were removed, so they have a nice little break from facial tubes. And, of course, we get to see their pretty little faces. Here are some pics:
