After a great prognosis Thursday night, Moses started having breathing incidents and low blood sugar levels. He went from nursing, to supplemental bottle feedings, to a feeding tube. Friday morning we were still hopeful that Shadrach could join us over on the "the good side" but he too began to struggle to control his sugars. The reality is, they are still premature. Premature babies just aren't ready to monitor every little thing on their own, including breathing and saving energy between feedings!
So we are back into that familiar routine (established with Jericho) of visits to the NICU. It is a place full of the most wonderful nurses but also very sick babies, much sicker than our own. Even as we gripe about the inconvenience, we're reminded how blessed we are.
