Update to boys: how long did it take?

Thank you for all your words of encouragement!  We have now been on an ad lib feeding schedule for 36 hours.  It was a little rough in the beginning but once they got their feeding tubes pulled yesterday morning it's been great!  They went from being force fed 60mL every three hours to hungrily eating 70-80mL every four hours.  Several nurses said they would lose weight but both boys gained.  Ha!  I'm hopeful that this will continue and we might have them home by their two month birthday.
