Learning to breathe again after the deaths of my twins, Nicholas & Sophia, my son, Alexander, and 6 miscarriages... and finding joy on the journey with my sweet preemie twins, Bobby & Maya, and our miracle TAC singletons, Michael, Lucas, and Ana.

Update on Nadya part 4
I received this note from Glenda. Keep those prayers a'comin!
Nadya is now eating all foods orally (no tube!) and eats when she wakes (every 3-5 hours). She had a stall this week in weight gain when they stopped adding higher calorie formula to my breast milk, but she picked back up and now weighs 5 pounds, 12+ ounces! She passed her car seat test on Sunday. In our own minds, we thought she might be home already. However, Monday she dropped her heartrate (not while eating), which adds 3-5 days without an episode. Also, while eating 12 hours later, she had an episode and the nurse had to pass oxygen in front of her to help her regain her level and bring her heartrate back up. We have been diligent in asking for a monitor temperarily when we come home and that is now being arranged.
