It is so very hard to blog theses days!! Sorry for not keeping my two blog readers up to speed on what's happening! =D But, thanks to my Nicky Picky Pooh Pooh I can blog from the hospital! No fun pictures but, I'll be able to blog!
Up dating seems to be so difficult! Like yesterday, they rushed in the room and asked if I had eaten yet... Not a good sign right! Well, depending on one more blood test results, they planned on taking to babies at 3. So that ment talking to nicu DR's, all my Drs, social workers, lots of blood draws, baby monitoring and touring the nicu. By the time Jeramy was able to go outside to start calling people my Dr came in at 2:30 and said my labs came back looking really great and the c-section wasn't going to happen today. By the time Jeramy got back and I told him the amazing news, a few folks were already half way here! Things change like the wind! Right now we are just taking it an hour at a time. They are letting me eat all day so no babies today! Yeah! Everyday they stay in counts! I've gotten the two steroid shots the babies needed and that's great! And also they think the steroids are helping my labs too!
So you can see why updating is so hard! By the time we let people know one thing it changes again! No one knows when the babies will have to be delivered. It's just moment by moment! Which is fine by me! I want them in for as long as it's safe for all of us! Prayerfully all my labs come back looking good and we'll be here for a long time! I am 28 weeks and 4 days today so I'd love if I could hang oat least a week, but i trust the Drs to know what's best for all of us!
So that's about it for right now! I'm sure it's going to change again and I'll try to keep you informed!!!
We still have more tests and ultrasounds this coming week so hopefully I'll have an update on the twins for you soon!
I actually have pictures and events to share with you! It's only that the images on still on my memory cards... SORRY! I go and do something and then by the time I get home I'm so wiped out I don't have the energy to take them off the cards, put them in folders and then put them in Lightroom, then work on 'em, then resize them for the web, THEN actually blog about them!!! I'm already tired!
I'll work on it!
Before the 4th of July I'll have Brady's 5th grade graduation blogged!
So, here's the deal for now, and it very well may change soon. As soon as we are able, we will give up dates. I apologize in advance if the updates aren't as timely as you'd like... I tend to feel more comfortable processing things first and things may change fast. So, please be patient! We will let you know as soon as we can.
Baby "B" the former "Donor" has "hydrops" caused by Fetal Anemia. If this is found in TTTS, it is usually found in the "Recipient" but in our case they found it in the "Donor" baby. Who knows why?
Well... God does, and I have faith in Him. I stand firm on his promises. His glory will shine in all this.
But, as of right now everything is just still so up in the air! The Dr said that Baby "B" has had or has a bleed somewhere... We may go back on monday morning and find the "hydrops" nearly gone. Maybe she had a bleed that wasn't caught, (you can't tell from ultrasounds) and it has already fixed itself. Who knows!?
What we do know is that their hearts aren't in heart failure. They are strong as of right now, and both girls are growing and active. They are right on schedule with my dates. By some accounts they are a bit big at 1lb 9oz. each. We really have no idea whats happening and why. The Drs. will meet and discuss the case and figure out a plan. And we may have to do another Amnioreduction.
It seems to be that all the ultrasounds and blood work are just to "rule things out" and once they rule things out they add up whats left and then they have an answer? I don't know!
Thank you so very much for all the prayers, and positive thoughts! Keep 'em coming! Our babies are on so many prayers lists! It's awesome!
