Baby News: Day 4

I talked to the neonatal doctor this morning as we were heading to the hospital. Ava had another apnea episode this morning. She had one the night they were born which automatically meant she had to stay 5 days in nicu. The one from this morning extended her stay until at least Monday. This means that she stops breathing for a couple of minutes. The doctor said since she was born premature, this can be causing her to forget to breathe. The nurse said she picked her up from her crib and started crying. Sounds scary but doctor said she is a healthy baby. They might do sleep study on Monday to see if its something random or might have to keep her on a monitor for a bit. A Home apnea monitor is one we can use at home. We are disappointed but much rather have her at the hospital for more monitoring. Especially since Aiden is still there. He had 3 of 8 bottles by mouth yesterday but doctor said he continues to do well. 
Ill keep updating on here since its easier than doing individual updates. And we have learned things can change from 1 day to the next. 
Thanks for the prayers for our sweet miracles. We can't wait to bring them home!
