Two Positive Meetings

On Friday, one of the specialist (Dr. Morales) stopped by unexpectedly to check in with April to see how she was doing. He was very upbeat and stated that the all of the specialist are very excited and satisfied with our progress so far.

April commented to the doctor that her and I were excited for the next sonogram to take place so we can see how much the babies have grown but he said that at this point, the babies weight is not as important as how many weeks we can go. Dr. Morales said that 30 weeks (which we just passed) is a huge milestone for the babies. At 30 weeks, the risk for bleeding of the brain is less of an issue and at 32 weeks is rarely seen in pre-mature babies so that is a big relief to us.

April also met with the founder of her OB group this morning and she was also very happy and pleased with our progress. She said that at this point "every day is sweeter" and that what has taken place over the past 9 weeks is basically a miracle.

April and I completely agree with the doctor's miracle statement and we have both felt the presence of God throughout this entire ordeal. Thank you to all of our family and friends for keeping us in your prayers and thoughts. We could not have made it this far without you.
