Drumroll Please....... Part Two

Just wanted to update everyone on the babies!
Thanks for all of your prayers and well wishes. At the doctor today we got good and bad news. Lauren is not doing much better, but Cannon is doing a little better. Both got Rocephin Shots today :( so we're hoping that they feel much better tomorrow! They both lost weight, so we HAVE to have not lost anymore by tomorrow's visit or I'm afraid of where she'll send us. Notice I'm not using the word that starts with h, ends in l and has ospita in the middle of it!! The Good News is Avery's PDA has closed!!! We have four healthy hearts, no surgeries needed!! WHEW!! On top of everything Gunner's tooth is giving him fits! I can only imagine when all four are teething!! Also, we are taking baby steps toward being Apnea Monitor free!! We are using them only during sleeping times now, which is SO much easier! We even went to the doctor today without them on. We're hoping to be monitor free by February 18th, their 6 month birthday, except for maybe Lauren.
Another thanks to everyone that has helped me the last two days with the babies. It takes a small army to get all four (counting HN, five) to the doctor, one for an x-ray, one for an echo, one to dance, etc. etc....

I'm glad the little ones PDA has closed. Our new preemie twins were born Nov 20...due on Jan 26....Both have murmers. Prentiss has a PDA and ASD...will have to have surgery at 6months if he continues well on all his heart meds. Luke has a PFO which the doctors are not concerned about. We see the cardiologist again next wk...of course with all the EKGs, ECHOs, know the routine. Please keep them in your prayers as I am praying for your little munchkins.

We have to go today & I can see it husband & I will be trying to prevent four babies from jumping off the table. Let alone trying to keep them from eating the paper off the gross! Hope their off their monitors by their 1/2 b-day!!!
