Im so exhausted, but wanted to give a quick update. The girls are doing really well, as well as they can be at this point. Audrey is breathing on her own and tolerating her feedings really well. She pretty interactive too, which surprises us. We love snuggling with her. Evangeline is still on oxygen to keep her little lungs open, and is also tolerating her feedings well. She is on "minimal stimulation" and so I don't get as much interaction with her, which is really hard. I can't wait for her to be off oxygen so I can see her face and snuggle more with her. Both girl's brain scans came back negative, so no brain bleeds!
I got back from the hospital yesterday. I had been there a month, and so it was amazing to be home and sleep in my own bed with my husband! I missed him! It has also been super challenging as I am trying to figure out this pumping schedule, recover from surgery, and cope with being away from the girls- it's ALOT! Sometimes Im so happy, and sometimes I just cry and cry. I feel like I'm barely surviving the days, with the pumping, spending time at the NICU, and trying to feed and take care of myself. I know as my pain goes down, and I figure out a system, all of this will be a bit more manageable- but for now, I'm still trying to figure out how to do it all. So many have asked to visit, I really appreciate it, but I feel like I need a bit more time to settle into this. Thank you for checkin in! Thank you for your prayers and please praise God for bringing the girls to delivery.
