Ellie gained 120 grams! The doctors were very happy about this. They aren’t challenging Ellie in any way at the moment (breathing feeding, etc) their main focus is getting her to gain weight. I assume she will stay in her little ‘house’ to encourage this too – just to save calories that would be burnt trying to maintain her temperature. Ellie and Daddy had some nice settled hugs today.
Hannah is tubeless! Just as a trial to see if she can handle having all bottle feeds. They will also change her to 4 hourly feeds. This will mean she has to drink more but won’t have to wake up as frequently and should be hungrier for her feeds and hopefully more awake!
I’m still staying away from the hospital, longest I have gone without seeing my girls so far. I’m up to the coughing stage so hopefully not too much longer.
