Thursday, June 17th was an okay day for the boys. Austin is having somewhat of a better day today. His blood work is showing some signs of an infection but nothing has grown on the cultures. They are going to start him on antibiotics to take care of whatever it is. His stomach x-rays are looking much better, so they are going to restart his feedings tomorrow. Calvin is still doing well on his feedings. He nippled three whole feedings today. He did have a couple apnea episodes so they put him on some oxygen, it is just an oxygen tank that they can come home on. He is on the lowest setting of 1/32 of a liter. I was suprised to see it on him this evening, but if he needs a little help that is all that matters. Calvin is up to 3lbs 3 oz. I had a MUCH better day today. I was able to spend time with great friends. Carrie came and brought lunch and visited outside for a few hours. Then Shelly came to the hospital tonight to see the boys for the first time!! I want to thank everyone for the emails and text and all the caring thoughts. I know I haven't got a chance to get back to everyone. I do honestly appreciate it. I told Greg I don't think we realize how many people are following our journey!
