Good news: we now know how to use our monitors!
Brooke and I (and my parents and Brooke's mom) got trained on how to use the apnea monitors that both Lily and Charlie will be on when they come home. We also learned how to use the oxygen tanks (just for emergencies) and how to perform infant CPR. Surprisingly, it wasn't all too hard. We were warned that it would be overwhelming but (maybe I'm being naive) it all seems doable. So we have all the monitors and are now only missing the babies to which the monitors need to be attached. Soon enough...
Both babies are doing well. Lily got hooked up for her PCG test around noon (the test runs for 12 hours so we won't know results until the morning). We already know that she had three brady episodes after a feeding but her nurse attributed them to reflux. If there's nothing else and the test doesn't show any major issues, she will have her car seat test some time in the middle of the night. Once we get the results from all of these tests, we'll be able get a better sense of exactly when she be discharged. Let's keep our fingers crossed that she aces her exams!
As for Charlie, he's pretty much holding steady. He hasn't had any major issues today and really just needs to show that he's not going to back-swing and he'll be ready to come home soon. Honestly, it seems to us like he's ready to roll but the doctors are just being extra cautious with him since they want to send him home at the same time as his sister.
So we need now to be patient and trust that Lil' will do well with her tests and be ready to pack her NICU bags soon. Go babies!
