Daddy holding James and Mommy holding John David. Pure joy! Both boys weigh 2lb 12oz.
James Daniel on the left and John David on the right. Notice who is asleep and who is wide awake...
The precious nurse caring for James and John David tonight, told me she had twin girls that were 9 years old and they spent 88 days in the NICU at Brookwood, 9 years ago when they were born at 26 weeks....very comforting to know the nurse caring for our babies tonight has definitely "been there, done that before" in her own personal life.
The doctors and nurses that work in the NICU at Brookwood are incredible. We have found not only are they extremely skilled and knowledgeable, they are compassionate and patient and speak of the wonderful works of GOD. The respiratory therapist said tonight that the boys were doing so well with their breathing. I made mention of the many people praying for them and he said, "Well, it is definitely working!" I couldn't agree with him more. A former neighbor stopped by today and congratulated me on our recent delivery. She asked, with a grimace on her face, "Are they okay?" And I responded, with a smile on my face, "They are doing remarkably well because GOD is so GOOD and people from all around are PRAYING for them."
Thank you so much for remembering our boys in your daily prayers. It means so much to us.
Rob is sensing that I am probably being a teeny bit "over protective" of the boys and they are only a week old. He asked me if I felt different with them than the girls. Well, duh? Yes, it is totally different. There is a really good chance that I might be extremely over protective of them and they just might be an itty bitty bit SPOILT Rotten!
