They are doing GREAT!!!

Well the babies are doing very very well. Despite their low birth weight they have a highest possible APGAR score . Felisa is doing quite fine too. She is estatic because one of the girls latched on for a feeding :) Anyway, gotta go, check out the pictures below. And remember you can always leave a comment below any picture or post that's on the page.

They're here!!!

Hi Everyone,
Our two daughters were born last night at 9:09 and 9:12 pm ! Both girls are fine and are doing well. Mommy is doing good too. The first one out weighed 5lbs flat and the second twin weighed in at 4lbs 13oz. Although they are half of Aliana's weight they are breathing well and feeding too. They are in incubators right now but hopefully, God's willing they will be out soon and ready to go home. Possibly this week! Please see next post for links to video clips and photos.

one happy daddy :)

A No-Church-Sabbath

Today was a hard day in that we really miss going to church. So we watched a sermon on tape, had luch, fell a asleep and kept track of Felisa's blood pressure. Like my friend Dane (from the group Touch) whose wife is also giving birth next week will tell you, babies do alot to a mom's blood pressure. For Felisa it is mercury rising! Today though for the most part it was not too high. We are trying to keep her rested so that it stays down. Our next appt. is on Monday. The doctor thinks he might deliver them then. At the last appt. he was pleasantly surprised to see how healthy the twins were from the last ultra-sound he did. He actually said they were perfect, with a big smile on his face The are now respectively at 5 lbs each. And thier Mom is as proud as as ever of her two lil watermelons that have taken over her body :) Anyway, keep praying and stay tuned. Posted by Hello
