Quick Update

Sorry that it took me so long to update, I have spent everyday in the NICU since they were born.  Things have been a roller coaster ride.  I will just give you an update on where things stand today. 
Wyatt needed a blood transfusion today the only reason it was needed was because they are drawing so much blood from them for tests that their little bodies can not keep up.  He weighs more than he did at birth he is not 2 lb 6 oz.  I did skin to skin with him at the end of last week, it was pretty wonderful.
Haylee Jo is probably doing the best out of all of them but they said they may need to do a blood transfusion and she is the smallest. She now weighs 1 lb 10 oz.  Since she is the one that is most stable I have got to do skin to skin with her 3 times now.
Layne just got off the ventilator this morning and had a really good day.  He weighs 1 lb 14 oz.  I have not held him yet but DH did today, he was really nervous but really liked it.
They all have a heart murmur (which is very common with how premature they are), Wyatt & Layne were given meds to fix it and they are watching Haylee but think it is going to fix itself.

You have a long road ahead of you. The NICU is a roller coaster, but they are gonna be tough babies and sail through. Hopefully the Indomethacin or Ibuprofen (whichever they used) closes their PDA. One step at a time, you can do this! I look forward to watching them grow.
