Sneak Peek

Well, I had to run milk out to the hospital today and Cameron's nurse said I could come in very scrubbed up, in a gown, with a mask, and with gloves, and not touching anything. She said she would check with the doctor to be sure. WOW! How much my girls have changed in two weeks. Just thinking about seeing them now brings tears to my eyes. They look HUGE! Of course huge is relative right now but they look so much older and it was just the medicine I had been needing. Cameron's jaundice seems to be going away now that she is getting milk. Her cheeks are very big right now due to the hydrocortisone they are giving her (I forget what it is for) but I have to be honest she does have it in her genes to have big cheeks (just look at Mommy). Reagan's body was all tucked into her snuggly but her head and face looked as if she had grown so much. Their weights have not changed much in the 2 weeks since we have seen the girls but they look so different. The girls are doing so well and I pray that they will continue to, I have not called to check on them yet tonight but had two reports today. Both girls' nurses have brought in special blankets and stuffed animals for the girls - they have been showered with love while we have been away. Unfortunately, the time table for Seth and I to be able to go and touch and hold the girls was restarted on Wednesday because Aubrey was sent home from daycare with a reoccurence of her stomach bug. But we are hoping that after today she is not contagious anymore. Wow - what a bug this has been - I have never seen anything like it! I will definitely be happy to see this go!

  1. I beat Deedie this morning AWESOME. Leslie I know how wonderful and hard that must have been for you to see the girls. Send Aubrey to our house for a mth or two, what difference is one more kid going to make at our house? 3 to four can't be that big of a deal. She might actually make is easier since Jessie would have a friend that can do more than roll over. I hope that this is the last of you bug problems and you two get in there soon. I do know one thing, nurses do love on some babies, as you said I am sure they have gotten plenty. Still praying for you all every day!

  3. Woke up during the night thinking they get to see the girls tomorrow.So sorry Aubrey just can't get rid of the "bug". Know you wanted to jump up and down when you saw the girls. I just can't imagine what it has been like for you and Seth being unable to see them but glad you got a sneak yesterday. My prayers are ongoing. P. & I. both beat Deedie this time--Wow!!

  4. Alright, so everyone beat me this morning. I bet neither of them got up with babies last night, I know they didn't actually! I did sleep in a little. But I am so glad to hear how well they are doing. I love the good notes, your happiness comes out in your typing. You should bring Aubrey to our house for a while, seriously, Jessie would love it, ship her by Amtrak, we'll pick her up in Charlotte, just kidding about Amtrak!:) One more won't phase us. I am praying for you all and that Aubrey stays well! I am so glad you got to see them! Talk to you later!
