That's what were taking! Things are looking a little better each day. Here's a short update.
We got the results back from Kylee and Brody's brain scans. Kylee's ventricle is still at a 4, but starting to absorb! Her other is still normal. The doctors are confident she will continue to get better. Brody's levels have remained the same (3 and 4) however, he does have fluid/blood between the two ventricles. The doctors will continue to measure his head and continue taking ultrasounds to monitor the swelling of his brain. If it continues to swell they may perform one (or more) spinal taps to try to relieve the pressure. We are not at that point just yet, but if we get there it's a pretty safe procedure. If for some reason he does have spinal taps and the fluid build up continues, we will explore the possibility of putting in a shunt. Brody's chest tube was removed on Friday and since then he is a little less swollen. He started eating Friday night and has done well at digesting his milk! YAY BRODY!
Mr. Korbin is off his CPAP and he is loving it! He is now eating 8cc's every feeding. Kylee and Baxlyn are on continuous feeds to help them digest a little better. Baxlyn is dealing with a little bit of reflux but nothing too concerning to the doctors. Kylee is no longer a glow worm, she has given that role to her sister now, as Baxlyn's jaundice has slightly come back.
Our prayer pager is constantly going off, thank you all for the prayers! We apologize for not being able to answer every call and respond to every text and voicemail. We appreciate the calls greatly, but are very busy trying to rest and be there with our babies as much as possible. We will update and post more pics again soon!
