Today the girls hit 40 weeks gestation! It didn't seem like this day would come, but it did and it came faster than expected. What little miracles these girls are. They have endured so much, but remain strong and continue to fight. The Lord's hand is evident in their lives. He is comforting them and loves them so very much just as we love them. We are closer each day to the day they get to come home, but we still don't have a date of when that will happen.
Haley - She recovered well after her surgery. She has been sleeping a lot. When she is awake, she has not been wanting to open her eyes. Who would after all she has been through with her eyes? Haley continues to gain weight well. She is 6 pounds 4 oz. There is talk about getting Haley's bowel reconnected soon. Her bowel surgery was almost 2 months ago. We look forward to getting her reconnected so she can get on the road to recovery and come home.

Rachel - Is as feisty as ever. She is so strong. She can move her head around well and she can also raise her self up. She likes to dig her feet in her bed and lift her self up. We are going to have to tie her down! She is getting a bronchoscopy next week and hopefully they can get an idea of why she didn't tolerate the nasal cannula. Rachel is gaining weight as well. She is 5 pounds 9 oz. We can't wait to when she makes it to 6 pounds. She moves around so much she burns her calories up. Rachel is now on formula (Neosure) as she is gaining weight much better on it than on the breast milk. I'm thankful she was able to get breast milk as long as she did.
