What day is it

I have no idea where the last five days have gone! But they have been amazing :)

I also have no idea where to start this post... so here's the latest news - the babies are doing fantastic!! Today was a great day! They're only 6 days old, and already they've surpassed so many milestones. We are riding on cloud nine!

Just an overview... (I'm learning an entirely new "doctor lingo" so the stats and numbers are filling my brain right now, but I'll try to keep this brief :)) Also, things change from minute to minute, so I’ll have to figure out a way to keep this updated without getting to ‘medical’… these three provide so much joy to DB and I every day, and I certainly don’t want to overshadow that with medical updates :)

Olivia - her breathing is steady - she was off the ventilator on day 2 (still requires assistance), she is still under the lights for jaundice, and her heart echo is better.

George - his breathing is steady - he was transferred to minimal assistance tonight, he is off the lights for jaundice, and his heart echo was great from the beginning.

Samuel - his breathing is steady - he was off the ventilator yesterday (still requires assistance), he is of the lights for jaundice, and his heart echo was great from the beginning.

Today was a huge day because all three got a clean bill of head health after ultrasounds were done – YEA!!!!

The prayers and thoughts that have been sent our way have been very powerful – thank you so much! It is a wonderful feeling for DB and me that so many people are loving our little ones… they mean the world to us!

A few photos of the punkins – finally :)

The night before the babies come!
