3 months

I forgot to mention that yesterday our babies turned 3 months old and it just happened to be their due date too! Isn't that crazy. I have been to the hospital every single day for 3 months. It is seriously only by the grace of God that I have been able to do it this long.

Today I have some great news. Liana's nurses got her doctor to give her the Enfamil AR and her first time taking it was at 11 am. Since that attempt she has not had any bradys! I am hoping and praying that this is what she needed to stop having bradys and to make it home soon. We are praying that she is officially finished with her bradys and that she can come home in a week.

Adleigh is now in progressive care right across the hall from Liana. We could actually stand at the edge of each of their rooms and the girls could see each other. This is the closest they have ever been to each other. They are getting Adleigh ready to go home and they have set up all her follow-up appointments. I don't think I mentioned this but after her surgery they said that Adleigh wasn't growing lengthwise like they wanted and they were checking on dwarfism. Wade and I think this is completely ridiculous, but I guess they have to check it out. So today they did some xrays of all of her bones to get a base of her measurements so they can check it against that later on down the road. She also has jaundice from being on the IV fluids for so long so she had to have some blood work down by the GI (gastrointestinal) people to get a baseline for her bili levels and she will also see them again a little later after she is discharged. I think her immunizations will start tomorrow since today was such a crazy day for her. I just can't wait for when they are going to tell me the day that she is going to come home!

I'm a friend of Holly's (from back in the day... WAY back!) and just wanted to say congrats on the birth day (or due day) or however you should say. Your girls are beautiful and will be keeping you busy at home soon!

I have been praying for your family since I discovered the Elevation website and your blogs about 2 1/2 months ago. God is soooo good! I can't wait to see pics of you all at home together.

I'm so on the edge of my seat Ferris. I think I will cry tears of joy when I read that "they are home!"

Still praying ;)
