I have so much to be thankful for this year. My family of course being the most important. I am so thankful that the twins are relatively healthy, Hallie can see out of atleast one eye, Heath has so far not had to have another heart surgery, Harley is a great big brother, my wonderful husband that takes such great care of me, that I get to wake up 3x a night to feed my baby girl....yes, I'm thankful for that! She eats, she is growing, and she is very thankful. I will also be thankful when she is big enough to sleep all night without having to eat. But, I do remember the days of constant praying that I would do ANYTHING for her to take a bottle, and I do suppose that meant not getting more then 3 hours a sleep at a time. I thank God everyday for my family and everything He has done for us. It has been a very hard road and I must say it has all been worth it. Preemie life is a rough road to travel and I wouldn't wish it upon my worst enemy but it has taught me a lot and I do believe I am a better person because of it. I have learned to have patience, dont stress over the small stuff. If a surgery can fix it, we're good!

Wow, how life changes after watching your children fight for their life!

I'm also very thankful for
-My parents, especially my mommy, she is the best mom in the world. I would have gone crazy many nights without her.
-The Amy Harris Fund that has allowed our twins to recieve their RSV shots this winter.
-Justin's parents, who are always there when we need them.
-the friends I have met in the NICU
-my neices and nephew
-the wonderful kids on my CC team, who make coaching worth it. Posted by Picasa

Another round of Synagis today. That $6000 qonder drug. The makers must be making a killing. They help save our babies but then they make us broke. Go figure!
Hallie now weighs 17lbs 10oz. YAY, the nurse said she gained a half pound this month. Heath was 22lbs 8oz.

Both babies seem to be progressing great. The ECI worker told me that "heath is SO smart" which was great to hear.... but im still wondering how she got that since he doesnt communicate!

Hallie is a little fairy, notice the cute shoes I just got her!! Heath is a tiger with glasses! Even though it doesnt look like he is getting much use out of them since he is looking over the glasses to see. Harley, of course, is the Shrek! The twins are getting their rounds of RSV shots Oct- March and we just got their first bill in....The shots were over 6000 a piece for ONE month. I wasnt informed that when they weigh a certain amount they use more dosage and the $$ amount doubles. Thank God for insurance or our little two would be having to go without them. At our last appointment Hallie weight 17lbs 7oz and Heath was over 22lbs. Both have broke through a lot more teeth lately...considering that Hallie just had one... anything is a lot but she now has FIVE... Heath has 7 and almost 8... Hallie and Heath both got 4 in a weeks time!
While he was throwing his daily tantrum at daycare, Heath broke his glasses. We had to call and get him a new pair. Besides all that, there is nothing new.
