Aiden also has had some positive steps in the last few days. On Tuesday they removed his PICC line which they were using to give nutritional support. This is great news because the PICC line has a reasonable chance of causing infection when left in long term and, more importantly, it means Aiden is able to get all of his nutrition from Janel’s milk and the Prolacta they are mixing with it. One less tube/wire hooked up to Aiden! They said they might remove Evan’s PICC line in the next couple of days if he continues to tolerate his feedings. He threw up most of one of his feedings Sunday night so they are being a little more cautious with Evan.
To celebrate the good progress made in the last few days, here are a few pictures of the boys.
