5/8/92 (Day 174) — Preemies at Home, day 41

May 8, 2011

Isaac — 5 pounds, 10 ounces, 18 inches 

Molly — 6 pounds, 1.5 ounces, 19 inches 

Not the most flattering picture of either of them, but you can see that Molly and Isaac liked spending time together in the same crib. Ike's hand is wrapped around Molly's oxygen hose, giving us fair warning of what would become an ongoing battle for the rest of the year … trying to keep their nasal cannula's in place. They got really good at pulling them out. Took both babies for a check up with Dr. Lum and got good reports.

Home nursing notes:

Good night for both, but neither particularly interested in eating. Molly had a large brown stool. Mylicon to Ike at 4:00 a.m. for restlessness and gas. He settled down right away.

Dr. Lum’s notes:

Isaac — Recheck in 3 weeks. OK to increase Mylicon to 0.2 or 0.3 ccs. Stay with 24 calorie Similac low iron. Increase iron to 0.2 cc TID. Good weight gain. Is doing well.

Molly  — Lasix and Nitropaste per surgeons. 24 calories Similac low iorn; add Fer-in-Sol 0.2 cc/day. Check eyes today.
