2 months old

Adleigh and Liana turned 2 months old yesterday! Both of the girls were having a pretty good day. Adleigh didn't have any bradys or apnea so I am sure they will wean down her flow today. I got to hold her for a little bit and in the week that had passed since I last held her she has gained some massive weight. I felt like she was truly a baby now. She did have to get another blood transfusion because her hemoglobin was low. At some point they will let her get low enough for her to make her own blood, but since she is still getting over her infection they didn't want to push her.

Liana took a whole bottle from the nurse at 11 yesterday, but when I went to try at 5 she just kept spitting and gagging. At one point she had a brady and her face turned blue. I usually handle these situations pretty well, but seeing her face turn blue really scared me. Thankfully, she just had a lot of mucus in her nose and once we got that out she seemed to feel a lot better and could breathe easily. So we think that we might lower Liana back down to 2 bottles a day just so she isn't being pushed too hard. She also had her brain ultrasound yesterday and we haven't gotten the results back from that yet. Hopefully today I can find out something.

Thank you for all the prayers. Our little girls are getting bigger and stronger and we are so thankful at how God is already using them to touch other people's lives.

Ferris and Wade, I have been following your story (via your sister Sharlie on NotNewlyweds). I am continually amazed at how well your girls are doing and though I don't always feel like a "strong" Christian, there is no doubt in my mind that the power of prayer is working for you. God bless you and your family. Maria
