Day two with our little sweeties

Day two here at the hospital is going well. KR was able to get off of oxygen early this morning so that is very exciting. She is receiving a little breast milk through her tube but so far her stomach isn't digesting food real well. They said that is not uncommon with premies, it can just take a while for their stomachs to wake up and get working. We can hold her any time so that is really nice.
KK is still a little behind her sister. She is on less oxygen now so that is good but has a little way to go. She has to get that down better before they can give her any breast milk. They have both lost just a few ounces but again that is normal and as their stomachs figure things out they will hopefully begin to put on weight. We will continue to keep you posted. It looks like I will be out of here tomorrow but will stay down here until the girls can come home.
