Wednesday, June 23rd the boys had a good day. Calvin was able to move to an open crib today. He has to be able to maintain his temperature and contiue to do well on his nippling in order to stay in it. He is up to 6 out of his 8 feedings every day by nipple. He is still in 1/4 of a liter of oxygen, but we are hoping he starts to wean himself down off of that in the next few days. Austin is doing fine. They discontiued antibiotics today because he has been on them for the full seven days. He is still doing well keeping his oxygen saturation up on the canula. He is about halfway through the feeding schedule getting him back up to full feedings. He is getting 5.5 ml per hour continuously through a pump. We had some visitors today. Papa McMahon came to visit and held Calvin for the first time. Aunt Melissa stopped by to see the boys after work as well. Tonight, Scott came to visit with Shelly, I think he was amazed at how well they looked. He said they look like babies, just little. I said they are preemies!! Then we went to dinner and I had some much needed fun and laughs! I went back to the hospital for Calvin's 11:30 feeding, and by the time I was done with that and got out of there I didn't get home until after 1:00.
