Thanks.

They did echocardiogram on Evelyn and it showed that PDA was small yesterday and this morning, they told me that it is closed. They increased her feeding intake. They also said Evelyn has improved a lot and has shown great progress.

Jayla is moving to intermediate care tomorrow.

I will start breastfeeding them next week at the hospital and they will have car seat challenge where the nurses will observe if the girls can tolerate being in the car seat for 90 minutes and also will observe us how to use car seat. And we will be taking cpr class.

Looks like they're coming home soon : BUT... ack... we've got no $$ for car seats and no cloth diapers! Looks like its time to say "mommy..daddy...we need $$ for those!!"

That is all good news!

Don't get discouraged if bfing is a little rough for awhile. It can be tricky for preemies. Your girls are nice and big, so hopefully they will get the hang of it quickly.

I breastfed Jayla today and she latched on just fine. She looked so satisfied after eating and burped so loudly. : Tomorrow, I'm gonna breastfeed Evelyn and hopefully it'll be successful but at least, I do know that I'll get to kangaroo care with both of them so that is also exciting.

Also for mother's day gift.. one of the nurse took pictures of my twins and created a poem next to the pictures. I was so touched and cried when I saw a picture attached to their isolette (sp?). So sweet!

Thanks so much for the story and the update. I hope today finds you and your girls in many snuggles......
Your DD1 sounds like a trooper to me, trying to navigate becoming an older sister to babies that she can't touch. I hope the best for all of you, as I know that you are giving everyone what they need, and I hope you are getting a lot back! Not sure if it will help, but I kept talking to DD1 about the fact that she is my FIRST BORN and how special that is. I even have a song that I sing to her about it. It helps every now and again when she feels like she's taking the backseat to her sisters.
~to you and your family. Peace.

Jayla and Evelyn seems to prefer my breasts than being bottle fed. Jayla might be coming home tonight or tomorrow and Evelyn might be coming home this weekend. I'm really excited and nervous at the same time.

I'm really excited because I get to be with them and snuggle with them whenever I want to but I'm nervous because I hope my breasts will be able to produce enough milk supply to feed both of them so they don't lose weight or starve.
