Well, I haven't been posting lately because I was just utterly exhausted. Each night I would be lucky to get 3 hours of sleep and that would be just in 30 minute stretches. I was running on nothing. Through the night the girls would go back and forth crying until I would pick them up. Thankfully, our physical therapist mentioned a mom of triplets who found peace through Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child. And it just so happened that my sister gave me the book when I was pregnant so I found it skimmed through it.
Our changes: We went to an earlier bedtime and stopped waking them up for a top-off feeding. It has been about 3 nights now and we have seen vast improvements! Last night Liana slept 9 hours straight! I am praising God for getting me through that stretch cause I think I was about to be a crazy lady. Anyway, I should be back to blogging now.
Since it is freezing outside the girls wore their bear suits to the doctor and of course I took some pictures.
I do have a few updates about the girls medically. Adleigh went to her cardiologist and we found out she still has her ASD which is a medium sized hole in the atrium of her heart. So far it hasn't gotten any smaller since they last checked her which was about 10 lbs ago. She will go to the cardiologist every year until she turns 3 or 4 and they will evaluate then if it is still too large and if they will need to close it.
Both girls were cleared by their eye doctor that their ROP had resolved and they will just need to go back when they are 1 year old.
Liana is pretty much back to her old self. She is getting used to her shunt and is playing more and laughing a lot. Her scars look really good and hopefully as she gets bigger we won't really see them.
I think that is all the updates for now. Thank you for praying for our sweet girls!
