Both babies are free from respiration monitors as of yesterday, which means they're almost ready to go home! They had very first vaccination shots today: Hib, pneumococcus, and DPT-IPV (diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, and polio). Naoya was very upset and cried so hard he had petechial on his forehead. Poor thing but these will make you strong. Hope they won't get fever...

Papa went to see them in the morning while I was out with Ton for movie, Your Name. It was daughter-mom time. Pretty good movie btw. I came over to hospital around noon, feed them. Nurse bathed them today and I could take their photos in bath tub. They told me now their respiration monitor was set to least strict one, they might be ready for going home soon...! It could happen earlier than we thought.

Evaluation of Masaki's physical movement in the afternoon, and according to physical therapist, he's getting better and strong enough to raise his head. I was told to start holding him upward with his back a bit curled. And Naoya could drink breast milk 52g.

44 weeks old today. I had to go to a follow up check up of my thyroids, I asked Renfield to deliver breast milk in the morning, and I came to GCU later than usual. Both babies were sleeping when I got there. They slept almost 5 hours. To wake them up, I bathed them, had rehab training and exercise to ease their back and strengthen abs. They're going to have another rehab session tomorrow.

MRI results came and they both had no problems on brains, organs, etc. Yay! Now the only thing left on check list is respiration...

Naoya fell asleep during feeding
Trying to have exercise to lose their back though not easy to find a perfect timing to do so between feeding, bathing, sleeping, etc. Managed to perform for Naoya but Masaki fell asleep so have to try again tomorrow.

 Masaki awake
Naoya didn't have low oxygen level last night, which is a progress! Masaki still needs some time to get better on this though...

Masaki had breathing problem again last night nurse had to woke him up to start breathing. It's been a while he had this... Masaki was up when I came to hospital, so I started breast feeding him. Maybe he was not in good mood, judging from the breathing last night, he kept crying for almost 20 min, I gave up and fed him with bottle instead. With Naoya I used a nipple and he could drink 22g. Some times they can do good, some times not....
