The weekend has come and gone just like that. Our beautiful little girls continue to progress. They are both steadily growing and seem to be getting stronger each day. We are so grateful for their beautiful little spirits. The joy that Thomas and I get each time we are with them is beyond description. We feel truly blessed to have both our girls here with us. We know they have been through so much, but we also hope they won't even remember it at all one day.
Rachel is doing reasonably well this weekend. She had her hearing screen yesterday. She passed in the right ear, but the left ear they couldn't get an accurate reading due to the noise from the cpap. They will check again later on both ears. Rachel is still on the dreaded cpap. They changed the cpap prongs she has been on. She changed from Argyle to Hudson prongs. Basically the Hudson prongs are bigger and a little longer. They fit in Rachel's nose better and don't move around as much. She really was having a hard time on the Argyle prongs. She seems to like the Hudson ones better. Rachel is weighing in at 6lbs 3oz. We hope she continues to grow because with her continued growth, some of her issues such as reflux and the floppy air way will get better. With time she will out grow those problems. Rachel just never quits. She will fight tooth and nail for what she wants. We love and cherish her so much. She is so darn cute.

Our Haley is such a calm baby and loves to sleep. She is not all that fussy unless her diaper is wet. Haley will be having a big week this week. She is scheduled for this Thursday to have her bowel reconnected. As Dr. Bloss does the surgery on her bowel, the opthomologist will also look at her eyes again for a follow up while she is under anesthesia. Haley continues to grow. She weighs 6 pounds 6oz. Haley is a little fighter. She seems to come through all these surgeries really well. Haley is such a beautiful little girl as well. We love and admire her very much. She just seems to plow forward and to over come all that stands in her way. Despite the challenges she will have with her vision, we know that will not stop her from being happy and living a good life. She and Rachel will always be loved and will always know they are loved by their mom and dad and their savior Jesus Christ.
