Because of you I laugh a little harder, cry a little less and smile a lot more. Surrounded myself with these perfect little people who add such value to my life. Who challenge me everyday to be greater than I was yesterday. Who sprinkle magic into my existence, just like I do to theirs. This is my mini tribe .. this is me healing my heart.
My boys are doing as well as they could be right now. Peter gained 85 Grams and now weights 3 lbs 15 oz. Maurice gained 40 grams and weighs 2 lb 61 oz. They are tolerating feedings well ( Peter had a few formula feeds over the past two days and had no issues). They agreed to keep Maurice on donor milk for a least another week because he is “still so small” and I’m so happy about this. They are breathing ok with high flow and not having any sustained heart rate issues. They are both more alert and awake during the day. I miss them .. I can’t wait to have them in my arms again.. ❤️ but I am living two separate lives right now. When I’m with my girls I’m present 100% with them and when I’m in the NICU I’m present for my boys. Its a work in progress and the hardest thing I have ever had to do. It has made appreciate them and our time more than ever. I’m so grateful for their magic and the strength they give to me.
