It was our first 4th of July as a family of 4, but there were no cookouts or games or fireworks. Just the now normal rhythm of feeding the twins. And it was good.
We turned a few important corners in the last 24 hours. First, Meg’s milk is in—an answer to prayer with two hungry boys to feed. Second was Coleman’s first full diaper—and it was really full. Before today, his diapers had only been yellow. But he made up for lost time today, and even laid some fresh meconium in Meg’s hand. (Fathers-to-be, meconium is something worth looking into before you’re caught off guard!)
The boys came off the bilirubin lights today, and this afternoon we started mixing in some bottle feeding. We’re getting closer to being done with the feeding tubes.
The nurses continue to say how well the boys are doing for 35-week preemies. It’s still looking like Megan will be discharged tomorrow, and hopefully the boys late this week.
Thanks for all your prayers. Jesus has been so amazingly kind to us.
