May 18, 2007

Each day that goes by, you three get bigger and stronger. Its hard not to think about the day we get to bring you all home.

Savannah, you are doing great on your feeds. Soon you wont have to have an IV. We got the results of your Ultrasound on your little head and it was unchanged from the last one. This is good and bad. The bad part is that it hasn't improved, but the good part is that it hasn't gotten worse. This means that sooner or later your body should be able to absorb the blood from your bleeds.

Cheyenne, you are doing good, but the doctors can't figure out why you have so much fluid in your lungs. Your mommy held you today and every breath you took was very raspy, and even though your still down on your oxygen settings, they are going to wait to put you back on CPAP until your chest clears up. The doctors gave you Antibiotics for 7 days, but it didn't help, and your Echo on your heart showed that your PDA was still closed. So we are hoping that the doctors can figure out what is going on, or your little body can take care of this on its own.

Brody, you are the one that is worrying us the most right now. The doctors showed us your ultrasounds from the last couple of days, and you can tell that the spinal taps are helping keep the pressure off your little brain. The problem now is, they weren't able to get anymore fluid from another tap today. If they aren't able to get fluid then you are going to have a reservoir put in which drains the fluid from your ventricles in your brain to keep the pressure off. This will be very major step, but a necessary one.

We pray everyday, and we love you guys so much. Your mother and I wish we could just fast forward through all this bad stuff that's going on and get to the part where you guys are at home with us.
