Yesterday was a busy day for us. I went back to work after being gone for almost 3 months, we had our second interview with the New York times and we also spoke with channel 39 KIAH News. The interview was aired on the 9pm news this evening. The most important news of course is our little girls. Ashlyn is still fighting and seems to be making it through this pneumonia. She is so resilient and seizes to amaze us. We continue to hope and pray she will continue to fight and recover fully from this illness. Ashlyn's last head ultrasound showed no change to the size of her ventricles which is great news. We hope that in time she will be able to reabsorb the extra spinal fluid and not need any more spinal taps. They have not been able to do another spinal tap due to her current illness and due to the fact she is edematous. The other girls are doing fine. Haley is now getting fed more expressed breast milk and is tolerating it. Haley's latest head ultrasound showed the brain hemorrhage is resolving and getting better. Haley had a good day today. Rachel's last head ultrasound showed that her small grade 1 hemorrhage is completely gone. All the girls are growing and getting bigger. They have doubled their birth weight. Haley and Rachel are 2 pounds. Ashlyn is 1 1/2 pounds. We have not been able to hold them yet, but in time that happy moment will come. How joyous that day will be! We do get to touch their little hands and feet. They are such adorable little girls and we are so blessed to be their parents. How special they are to be here with us.
