First of all remember that I am not a doctor- haha...just trying to relay the information as best I can without mixing anything up!
Today was a great day for the little Alferios. All five are now only receiving respiratory assistance from the little tubes in their noses...no more masks! Three of them-Brooklynn, Kensley, and Leighton were able to have the IVs taken out of their belly buttons and have PICC lines put in instead-this means we will finally get to hold those three tomorrow!!! I never thought it would be this soon that I would get to hold any of them so I am beyond excited! Giovanni and Jade will probably get their PICC lines put in tomorrow but had to wait on a few more tests... I think it was because their white blood cell count was low but not 100% positive. We try to ask as many questions as possible to clear things up but sometimes details get hazy when we are talking about five different scenarios!
Jacob has already said that he thinks Giovanni is going to be a mommas boy...even though he was by far the heaviest baby he has turned out to be quite the whiner! Haha...he is the one who always seems to be needing the attention! Sometimes it's hard to choose who to spoil first!
