Babies home now and starting to feel better

Graves disease






Faternal twins

Well the babies were born on 3-13-08.  One of them had stopped growings so they had to take them really early.  They weren't even due until 5-2-08.  One was 3lbs. 10 oz. and the other was 4lbs 3 oz.  It took them a month in the NICU to get to were they could come home.  The journey of this pregnancy was so bad.  I got MRSA sepsis.  So I ended up having to have three surgerys besides the C-section.  It was really hard on me, I didn't think I would make it threw all that, but I did.  I had to leave everything in Gods hands, because I knew nothing I could do would change things.  God has given us many blessings now, I'm alive, my girls are alive, and we are teaching doctors new things.  Turns out our girls are not identical, they are faternal, and yes both of them were born with Neonatal Graves.  They are both being treated with PTU and propananol.  The littlest one is going to be taken off all meds on Sat. night, and the other one will soon be there we are hoping.  We have seen so much things go wrong, and they are all starting to look up now.  I have struggled to get better fast, and it is starting to happen, but it doesn't seem like it can come fast enough.  Anyway on with my day.
