Saturday, May 22nd, the boys had another pretty good day. Calvin was able to get his IV taken out since he is now on full feedings, and that is enough to not only give him all of his nutrients, but also enough fluids that he won't dehydrate. He is getting 13 milliliters every 3 hours, and just as a point of clarification, one ounce is 30 milliliters. We were surprised when we arrived this afternoon, they had Calvin dressed and swaddled in a blanket. Austin, is just about to his full feedings, so hopefully he will be getting rid of his IV soon. Papa Fonger and Nana came to visit this evening. Nana had a sore throat so she didn't go visit the boys. Calvin was wide awake, so it was nice for Papa Fonger to see him with his eyes open. The boys both gained a little bit of weight today, which was good, but these small increases in weight can be a bit frustrating. They have to get to 1500 grams before they can get in an open crib instead of the incubator. If only they could gain weight as easily as their parents!
