Growth and 2nd Major Milestone

We hit our 2nd major milestone on Thursday, October 16 when we reached the 28 week mark. This is a major accomplishment in the eyes of ourselves and the doctors. At this point the doctors feel much more confident in the event that Patrick and Savannah were to be delivered in the upcoming days.

In addition to hitting that milestone we also had another sonogram and both Patrick and Savannah continued to grow. Patrick gained 3 ounces and now weighs 18 ounces (1 lb 2 oz) and Savannah gained 10 ounces and now weighs 34 ounces (2 lb 2 oz). These numbers are also very important because it means that Patrick is now over 500 grams which is further indication of his viability. The sonogram also showed that Savannah's blood flow continued to be good and Patrick's was status quo with the restricted blood flow.
