Today has been a good day for Rachel and Haley. Those two girls are growing and looking cuter everyday. I changed Rachel's diaper this evening. I can actually say I like changing their diapers. I don't know if I will be saying this once they get home and have to do it all the time, but it gives me the opportunity as a mother to get to do something for them. Our Ashlyn just amazes me as she constantly fights no matter the illnesses and challenges she has been facing. Her fighting spirit just shows that she has a strong will to not give up. She has not gotten worse today, but she continues to have poor urine output. Her blood pressure seems to be getting a little higher which will help the perfusion to her kidneys and thus help her urinate better. The doctors are restricting how much fluid she gets to help keep her from getting more edematus. Ashlyn's primary nurse Kathleen talked to us tonight about a baby she took care of in the past who had illnesses and challenges similar to Ashlyn's. She told us that today the little boy is now healthy and growing. Kathleen is a wonderful nurse. She loves little Ashlyn and cares for her so well. We really like the nurses at Woman's hospital. They are all very caring and have been taking good care of our girls.

This weekend my parents (the girls grandparents) came to visit us and the girls. We had a good time together today. We went to Kemah Boardwalk and had dinner at Landry's in celebration of my upcoming birthday. My birthday is Tuesday September 29.
About a week ago we bought a freezer. We needed this freezer for all the breast milk I have been storing. I'm sure a lot of mom's out there have been in this similar situation. I'm glad I have been able to pump milk for my little girls. I know that my milk is the best for them. Thought I would share a picture of all the breast milk I have been storing.
