Today we had a great visit with the girls. Our little Ashlyn continues to fight for her life. It is amazing how strong she is despite everything she has and continues to go through. She is swollen due to all the fluids that she is getting. Some days she has good urine output and other days she does not, though it seems to be getting a little better each day. Thomas and I were able to "hold" her today. It was a modified hold where we put our hands into the isolete and lifted her up off her bed. We were able to gently rock her. She tolerated it well. It was nice to be able to touch and hold her like that. We got to change her diaper too. Rachel is getting better though she still has some fluid on her as well. She is not as edematus as Ahlyn. Haley is doing good. Yesterday she had to have a PICC line placed surgically. She handled it well. Today I got to change her diaper. She was being a wingle worm while I was trying to change her. It was so awesome! Thomas and I got teary eyed as we enjoyed the moment with her. Our little girls are so beautiful and we are so thankful for them. God continues to watch over our little family, we truly feel His love and His kindness in these difficult times of our lives. It never ceases to amaze me, that there is a loving Father In Heaven who does hear our every prayer, who does helps us through the most challenging times of life.
