Thanks so much for all the thoughts and prayers for the girls! I really appreciate it.
The girls were born on [name]October[/name] 28, at 10:10 am and 10:28 am. [name]Eloise[/name] [name]Charlotte[/name] [name]Lavender[/name] was 4 lbs 6 oz, natural, and [name]Matilda[/name] [name]Adelaide[/name] [name]Rosemary[/name] was 4 lbs 10 oz, c-section.
The girls are not identical (YEAH!!!), but at this point, you can hardly tell. They look very similar but have a slight eye color variation.
There were some complications with [name]Matilda[/name]'s birth and then she was diagnosed with RDS. On [name]Saturday[/name] we thought that she may have started to develop pneumonia! She is still in the NICU, still using a respirator, and still being closely monitored. It’s such a helpless feeling seeing your sweet little baby struggling, but she is gaining some strength and hopefully will be able to go home soon.
Everyone try to get the flu shot! [name]Both[/name] of them. I got the regular one, but the H1N1 wasnt available in our area, and I developed a light case of it which led to some of my complications. Thank goodness it wasn’t more serious!
I was finally able to hold [name]Eloise[/name] on [name]Sunday[/name], such a sweet sweet baby… and I got to “hold” [name]Matilda[/name] last night.
[name]Dorothy[/name] has had a reprieve of the terrible twos - which is so much fun with everything else going on. My husband has had to work, so my mom and I have been trying to shuffle back and forth between home and the hospital since [name]Monday[/name]. Its exhausting and very difficult to know where you should be. [name]Henry[/name] has had some setbacks and unfortunately, I haven’t been able to be completely “there” for him. Hopefully, his grandma will be able to come down to help in a few weeks.
Mi vida loca!
