Will: Will's doing pretty good today. His ventilator settings are down. The doctor said he hopes to be able to ween Will from the ventilator in the next week to ten days. Yeah, little man is having a good day.
Lindy: Lindy, however, is being a bit of a problem child. The doctors fear she has an infection, which they've begun treating with antibiotics. They have had to put her back on the jet ventilator (she had been on a conventional ventilator for about 24 hours). They will do another echocardiogram next week to see how significant her PDA (a heart condition common in premature babies) is and then make a decision on treatment. The neurosurgeons are keeping an eye on her head circumference to make sure her hydrocephalus (water on the brain) doesn't put too much pressure on her brain. I think she likes the attention.
