They had nice little warm spongebaths and their hair was so fluffy and pretty. But it would have been hard to get very good pictures today.
Kristen has been uncomfortable today, and feeling quite fuzzy and spacey from all the pain meds. She's also itching quite a bit. But she's going to be fine, I'm certain of that.
In the mid-afternoon, both girls had a bit of up and down blood pressure, which of course made their mommy nervous. I tried to encourage her that there will probably be lots of these ups and downs with their tininess. From what I gathered from the docs and nurses yesterday, they'll probably be in NICU for about four weeks.
The staff is wonderful - so kind and so very professional. We are blessed to have such good care for both Kristen and the babies.
This evening, about now in fact, they'll be doing the PKU test on each of them. This is a test that is required by law to be done on all newborns (see http://children.webmd.com/phenylketonuria-pku-test for info on this test).
We are so thankful for these miracle babies. All of you had a part in this miracle. And speaking of miracles, remember Micah?
Many of you have prayed for him over the last year as well. If you want another blessing, go here and read the latest update!
You'll find a January 1, 2008 posting that will knock your socks off. What a mighty God we serve!
