Lung maturity project


13 days old
Our Neonatologist calls what is happening with our babies a "lung maturity project", and this is a project that will take awhile. They responded fairly well to the first dose of steroids but not well enough to make significant improvements. So we will repeat the steroids but not for another 10 days. On a positive note, the babies have increased their NG tube feedings and both are responding well to feedings. They are pooping- which is something to get excited about! Eden is still having trouble with stimulus, so we limit our touching with her.

The waiting game and the inability to hold and cuddle them is very hard for Scott and I. We both had breakdowns today and need God's strength to get through this. Please continue to pray for our little girls to make quick progress.
