Here is a quick update today as we had a late night last night and was not able to update our blog. Yesterday the girls turned 6 weeks old. How time has flown by. They have all had their challenges and struggles since birth and they continue to struggle in various degrees. Ashlyn is the one we are the most worried about at this point. She is just not urinating enough to get the extra fluid off. She has roughly 3 pounds of fluid on her. All the extra fluid is putting a strain on her lungs. We worry about her a lot and are not sure what to expect in the coming days. Her doctors are trying everything they know. Rachel is sick as well, but seemed to be getting better as of late last night. This morning though her blood pressure was going low again. Even our superstar Haley has a new infection now. We were not able to hold her yesterday because of this new infection they found. She was put on antibiotics again. She is still getting the breast milk feeds and is tolerating them well. This journey has been tough and we hope and pray that these girls will get better and be able to fight these infections. Being so premature, they just don't have the immune system to fight infections right now. So all we can do is pray and leave it in the Lord's hands. Only time will tell.
