Update on Jenna

Talked to the Dr. a little while ago.

Dr. Dekowski said that he's not concerned with another Ventricular Hemorrhage as those things almost always happen within the first few days of life. She's already got another head ultrasound scheduled for Fri.
She's been doing pretty good today. She's only had one A&B, and she's been doing very good on her new CPAP settings. We should have the blood culture results back tomorrow, which will tell us if there is an infection and what flavor. It is possible last nights Apnea's were caused by something simpler (stomach or gut not strong enough), but is usually the result of an infection.
So, for now she's doing good while the antibiotics do their thing and she rests up. We should have more definitive news tomorrow.

Blake is doing great. Just chuggin along with his feeding and a very gradual reduction of his breathing settings.

That's all there is to report right now. Thanks for keeping up with their ongoing journey.
