Today was a great day. I got to hold Cade twice today. I went in for a while during the day and was able to hold him once then. Later, Jimmy and I went back. He was able to hold Camdyn for the first time, and I was able to hold Cade again. So, we got to hold both of our babies. It made it very real that we actually have twins! It was absolutely amazing for us to finally be able to hold both babies at the same time. It has now been 40 days. We also got to hear Camdyn cry a tiny bit for the first time. It was so cute. What an amazing day with so many firsts!
Camdyn has been in the 20s on her oxygen, and Cade has been in the 30s on his. They are both doing much better. Their lungs are starting to show some improvement. Camdyn has lost a little weight as a result of the steroid, but they have added protein to her milk to help her gain weight. She was down to 1 lb. 11 oz. from 1 lb. 14 oz. She gained an ounce back tonight after receiving protein today, so she is at 1 lb. 12 oz. Cade now weighs 2 lb. 5 oz.
God, I am so thankful that are sweet precious babies are doing much better now. Continue to bless them and strengthen them. I feel blessed to now be able to hold our little miracles. We ask for you to help them gain weight and to help heal their lungs. Amen.
