    Went down this morning to feed and the kid that was weak started yelling, popped up and hobbled over to mama and found the teat on his own! He nursed very well but still coughed a bit afterwards. I wonder if their swallowing reflex can be a little slow sometimes? I was so relieved that I didn't have to tube feed him. The other kid is doing great. The weaker kid was even trying to play! Now I feel like I can enjoy this. :sing:

    He might have a bit of wet lung but it's great to hear the improvement. It's remarkable how these little guys can come around. Yes, now enjoy them!
