For the first time, Alice was tube and monitor free today. Not hooked up to anything. And in a proper little cot. We fed her, changed her and had loads of cuddles. She was very bright and alert and was also quiet and placid. She barely cried – and only then very briefly when we wiped her very sore bottom.
She’s perfect and she’s making fantastic progress. The only thing that hurts about that is that her sister should be right there with her.
There’s no real change with Maggie. She’s feeding well, resting well, breathing well and reacting well. Shannon changed her nappy, through the holes in the side of the incubator. She – Maggie - even pooed as she – Shannon - was doing it. Hurrah for Maggie poo!
Pictures of Alice below. As you'll see, she's still a little jaundiced. Jaundice - pffft.
No pictures of Maggie though as I couldn't get a nice one without the reflection from the incubator - and, really, she doesn't look any different to the way she looked yesterday. Sorry Maggie - I'll take more of you later!
