hungry little boys: NICU day 72

I'm home sick again today. I hate it and I hate missing work and having a sub try to figure things out but it's the smartest choice. I want to see the boys so bad and I knew if I went in to school today, things would not get better. I remember a few days ago I posted about Sean and I physically being drained. It all makes sense now. What always happens when you wear yourself thin? You get Sick! Sean didn't feel too great this morning either, I'm hoping he doesn't come down with anything.

The babies were sound asleep when I called a couple hours ago. I love when they're sleeping because then I don't worry about them being wide awake looking around for mommy and daddy. It breaks my heart that I can't be there more often to just hold them and talk to them. I posted yesterday that Carter is doing great on his feeds. He is taking four bottles a day now and apparently he loves it! He took a bottle(48ml) this morning in 11 minutes! Guess, he was hungry! He's still on 21% and his flow is down to 2. I cannot wait to get that cannula out of their noses. Luke is doing great. He's taking two bottles a day and the nurse said he's taking them just as fast as his brother. Luke is on level 3 flow.

Keep on keepin' on
