From now on, the girls isolettes will have to be covered at all times to shield the light. We will also not be taking as many photos, if any, so please enjoy the ones we have so far.
Most importantly, we are no longer supposed to have guests. Thank you to everyone who was lucky enough to meet us already. Everyone else will have to wait until our homecoming.
Grandmas and Grandpas, you are still welcome to visit. We just have to cut back. Also, there is no more touching by anyone other than Mom, Dad, and the NICU staff. Please adhere to these new rules if you are visiting without us, and feel free to read this protocol outline the nurse left out on her desk for more details.
This news was really difficult for us as we had been encouraged to initiate these behaviors. We are glad to have had these first few days to meet our new baby girls, and understand that these protocols are in their best interest. Mom will continue to keep you all updated, and try to take a picture as the nurse allows. Grateful for all your kind thoughts.
Here are a couple pictures from today, which was actually a really great day for both girls. Lincoln no longer needs a nasal cannula so you can see her face much better now. They are both feeding and gaining!
