Yesterday, we walked into the NICU to see Patrick & Savannah and were met with a pleasant and uplifting surprise. The night shift nurses created personalized nameplates for both of them to place on their incubator along with some unique nicknames.
They decided that Savannah is a "Heavenly Gift" which we absolutely agree with. She is doing well today and there have been no major changes with the exception of her increased food intake which is a good thing.
The nurses picked the nickname of "Doodlebug" for Patrick. We are still trying to get to the bottom of where they came up with that. I may try to persuade them to change Doodlebug to Tank:) but I am sure that April will want to have a say in that. Patrick is becoming a favorite of the nurses and we are looking forward to him actually beginning to receive formula over the next day or two.
Every visit is sweeter than the previous one and we love spending time with both of them even if it is for just a little while.
Finally, today we celebrate one week that Patrick and Savannah have been on this earth with us and we could not be happier.
