March for Babies - Huge Success!

Family and Friends,

The March of Dimes was a huge success. Thanks to all of your support, we collectively raised more than $2,500 to help other families. Thank you so much for the continued support.

With lots of Love!

Babies Situation:

They are now 9 days old - amazing. They are still tiny, tiny, tiny and have not gained more than an ounce each. However with their new feeding and increased amounts per day, we should start to see some growth soon. There is some concern however that Trinity's brain bleed has come back based on an ultrasound they just performed this morning. Our Doctor decides to give her an anti-inflammatory medicine asap. Trinity is also high on her sugars so they will be continuously monitoring her blood levels.

On the other hand, Kinsley is starting to rebound nicely from a couple of rough days. The cultures finally come back negative which is great. However her sodium is a bit low. She seems to be a tough little nugget to track her levels and adjustments as she is up and down quite a bit. Kinsley gets her first sponge bath. They cannot be moved from their incubators so their baths are a little different than the ones we are used to.

Parent's Thoughts:

We are very thankful for another day. A full work week has past and we are starting to settle into our routine of visits even though we are physically and mentally exhausted. Our little girls meet their Uncle, Ed, for the first time. I am sure he will give them a hard time later in life but for now he just wanted to say hi. Other family and friends continue to check in to see how they are doing.
Our Doctors and Nurses are amazing and we realize again how lucky our girls are to get such good care. A week of ups and downs and the weekend to reflect and take it all in is in order.

Our Daily Encouragement:

Encourage each other to build each other up, just as you are already doing.

1 Thessalonians 5:11
