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:

The Girls are 41 weeks today and still working on their feedings. Dr. Diven, the Girls’ primary doctor, sat with Elizabeth (their speech therapist), Crystal (their primary nurse), and myself to figure out what the next step should be for their feedings. Trinity is going to remain at 3 bottle feeds a day. She is still averaging around 45 cc’s per bottle feed. She does act somewhat premature so we all feel comfortable keeping her where she’s at. Kinsley is acting more mature so Dr. Diven and Elizabeth decided to have her feed every 3-4 hours on demand. They have asked me to be present for as many feedings as possible. Since our nurse usually has to care for 4 babies at a time, with these new orders, it will be hard for them to feed Kinsley whenever she acts hungry. We plan to spend most of our time at the NICU this weekend (more than normal). On Monday, Dr. Diven and Elizabeth will re-evaluate the situation.

Parent's Thoughts:

Time is precious and everyone is now doing what they can to get the Girls home as soon as possible. Dr. Diven has made time each day this week to see the Girls. Elizabeth continues to show me techniques that will improve Trinity and Kinsley’s feedings. Our primary nurses work extra hard when feeding the Girls trying to get them to take the maximum amount. Thank you to everyone!! I also want to thank all of you who read our blog and pray for us. Without all of you, our situation would have been even harder for us to bare. Just remember-God is good and prayer is powerful.

Our Daily Encouragement:

But I will come to you shortly, if the Lord wills, and I will know, not the word of those who are puffed up, but the power.

1 Corinthians 4:19
