Keeping you and the little ones in my thoughts, have you had the steroid shots to help mature their lungs? A story to give you some SIL had her twins at 32 weeks (one baby was not growing so they felt she would do better out). They were tiny almost 4lbs & 4 1/2lbs. They stayed in the hospital for about 2 1/2 weeks, it was tough but they are healthy 9 year olds now.

Thanks to you all! I have had the shots for their lungs. I've got one dose of IV antibiotics left, then on to oral. I'm dreaming that they won't have to stay at all. If they do we can stay on campus at the Ronald McDonald house. So, we'll be able to be with them everyday.

I just had my IV replaced because it infiltrated and the fluid was rapidly making a bubble under my skin. Wow, was that ever painful! New one is much better. Should be able to get it out as long as everyone is doing well tonight. Wish us luck.

since we have been spending 12 hours+ a day in the NICU we have seen a lot of babies come in...last night 29 week old twins came in and they are going to be just fine!

you know my little one was born at 33 weeks ...Dr's say about 3-4 weeks in the hospital and he will be fine.

I will be praying for you and your little babies
