Today has been an awesome day for all three of our beautiful little girls. Ashlyn once again proves she is a fighter. Today she has urinated well. We were so happy to hear this great news as she had not been urinating much at all yesterday. She has urinated approximately 203cc's to this point. We hope and pray that she will continue to pee pee well. Thomas always playfully tells her every time he sees her that "if you pee pee, mommy and daddy will be able to take you home". I think Ashlyn has heard daddy and really wants to go home. Grandma Benedict (my mother) kept telling us this weekend that Ashlyn will have a great day on Sunday. She was right and I guess we should never doubt a Grandma's intuition. At today's visit, we were able to hold little Ashlyn for the second time. It's always such a spiritual and a bonding experience when we hold our girls. While I'm holding them, I'm in awe. I'm amazed as I watch them. As I look into their beautiful faces, I feel at peace and am full of love. What a special blessing they are!
Haley had a great day as well today. They were able to wean her O2 down to 40%, which is awesome. Rachel also had an a great day. Her last chest x-ray looked really good and they have increased the amount of breast milk she is getting. Rachel really likes to lay on her tummy. She looked so cute today laying on her tummy. She was wearing her cute pink hat.
Over all this Sabbath day has been great for our family. I know that there is a loving Father in Heaven who is hearing all our prayers. He will do what is right for our little family. He doesn't always seem to do everything I want, but he does do every thing I need, and what is best for us as a family. I know he sees the whole picture and I have only a glimpse. I firmly believe that God will not try us more than what is absolutely necessary for our growth and learning. We have been so blessed through out this whole experience even in our hardest moments. God is in the details of our lives.
