Gaining weight

Sorry for the late update. After Jay & I got back from our visit with the babies, I plopped down on the couch and am just now getting up. Both babies were doing well today. I held Hayden again today for about an hour, and she was as sweet as ever. Again, she had her eyes wide open the entire time. Hank was getting jealous in his bed. He squirmed and cried trying to get some attention, but we can't hold him again until he's breathing completely on his own like his sister. Hank did make it to 2 lbs. today. Of course, the way they fluctuate he could go back down tomorrow, but it is a small victory, and we're so proud of him. He's up to 15cc of milk every 3 hours, so he definitely ought to be putting on weight. Hayden is getting 4cc every 1 hour continuously, so we should see her gaining weight soon. Today, she was at 1 lb. 13.6 oz. They did Hank's head scan today, but it was late in the afternoon, so we hope to have results tomorrow. We are so overwhelmed by all the people who are checking out the website and signing the guestbook. We wish we could email each one of you to thank you personally but that would take forever! Please know that we are so very grateful and will forever be indebted to you for the prayers you have lifted up for our children. We wouldn't be where we are without you!
