11/02/09 Evening Edition

Yesterday and today have been busy for Jen and I, but very quiet and stable for the girls. They continue to make small changes to their settings day to day, but overall, we have been impressed by their continued stability. It has been 8 days, and I feel like they are getting bigger. Jen was very excited to be seeing the girls today after having fevers over the weekend. Unfortunately, while we were walking to the NICU, she felt a strong tightness in her chest. They sent us up to Labor & Delivery to get checked out and eventually gave her a CT scan on her lungs. It turns out she is not filling the bottom of her left lung like she should. She has a device that will help her practice deep breathing and it should clear up soon. Sometime in the next 24 hours, the girls will have the lines going into their umbilical veins disconnected and a new PICC line installed. This is another important step and a good sign of progress. We will be staying another night at Ronald McDonald house and then visiting the girls in the morning. Tomorrow around lunch, we will head home for a little rest and then come back on Wednesday.

  1. Praying for you all. My cousin had twins at 24 weeks and one of them is now the cutest, smartest 4 year old I know!

    Jen – I hope you are feeling better soon. Remember to take care of yourself also!

    Sending hugs!!

  2. Jen,

    That breathing issue is apparently a real problem with many women after having c-sections. I know after mine, they had this tube I had to breathe into to test lung capacity, etc. I hope that you continue to feel better.

    I am so glad that the girls are doing good. They are both fighters. I am sure you both are looking forward to being home, if even for a little while.

    Your family is always in our prayers.

  5. Dear Jen and Jason,

    Every day I read your blog and cry sometimes and pray always. I am thankful you have friends and faith to help you endure these very very dark and hard days. A year ago you had no idea . . . We don’t know the troubles of the future we must bear, but we do know the Burden-Bearer, the One who keeps all our tears in His bottle and who has promised to give us beauty for ashes.

    Each day I think of you and your beautiful tiny daughters, Juliana and Zoe (such beautiful names!) and little Eden in the arms of God.

    You are in my thoughts and prayers with lots of love,

    Rachel Byrd
