Update

Hey guys thought I would stop in and update you guys on Presley and Kourtney. They are doing good but it is a roller coaster ride that I desperately want off of. They are both 2 lbs 6 oz now and look a whole lot healthier than they did when they were first born at 1.5 lbs! They actually have meat on their bones. Must be from Mommy's milk! WinkWink Kourtney is on the CPap and Presley is still on the ventilator. She just cannot seem to get strong enough to move on from it. Please pray for her. I made them a website so if anyone is interested in seeing pictures go to theswaintwins.blogspot.com to see pictures and videos. They thought I had a lung clot last week but after a lot of worry, it turns out it wasn't so that's a big sigh of relief. I hope everyone is doing great and that nobody goes into labor right now!!!!!

Hi Ashlee,
I'm happy to hear that you didnt have a blood clot, how scarey:eek: Its great that the girls are gaining weight, they are such fighters. I know they will be doing every thing on there on soon. They are still only 30 weeks gestation. You guys are still in my prayers. You are such a strong woman;)

Oh they are so precious! I am glad to hear that they are making progress. I am also glad to hear that you didn't have a clot in your lungs. I dealt with that in 2009 and now I take shots 3x a day while carrying the baby to help avoid it. It is super scary! Hang in there girl, it sounds like your kiddos are fighters! I am so happy.

They are looking really good. And I LOVE, LOVE that first picture of Presley holding your hand. Swear it brought tears to my eyes. I continue to pray for them all the time. You and your family have had a rough road, but you are doing a fabulous job mama! So happy that the blood clot scare was just a scare.

Thanks for the update Ashlee. I checked our your website, how special that have been able to capture all these wonderful memories of the girls to share with family and friends. It brings tears to my eyes how tiny and precious they are. I'm sorry you missed the special moment of your DH getting to hold Kourtney. Sad

Ashlee- I am so glad to hear that the twins are doing as well as can be expected. I check in often. I am sure one of us on the twins boards will try to keep everyone informed when possible. :bigarmhug: Your babies are fighters! I love the blog and will try to keep track of you there when I can.

I'm glad your little ones are improving by the day--the pictures on your blog made me cry, just b/c I've been there and I know how much it means to be able to do Kangaroo care with your baby when they spend most of their day in an isolette! Those were the highlights of my days when Jake was in the NICU. He wasn't born as early, but I know how hard the rollercoaster ride is in the NICU. HUGE hugs to you.

I think and pray for your girls often and will continue to do so!
