Back on the vents

I spoke with Dr. Owens today, and he said that both babies are back on the ventilators. This is not a bad thing, they were just experiencing some apnea, so the vents are just giving them some assistance. Hayden is almost on room air, and Hank is on minimal oxygen. They are getting 2 ml of breast milk every 3 hours, and both are tolerating it well. The transfusion went fine, and we can expect 2-3 more. They will probably get a routine head ultrasound tomorrow to check for brain bleeding. Jay will be visiting them tonight, since I'm only allowed to go every other day for a couple of weeks. I'll be updating the site when he returns tonight. Thanks again for your prayers
