Long Emotional Day

Wow, what a long day it has been.

I want to start by saying thank you all for the extra prayers going out to Kennedy, she has been placed on an oscillator (different type of respirator) that seems to help get her oxygen levels under control.

Both babies started on Indocin today to hopefully close their PDA valve in their heart. This is a common issue with babies born this early but it is the leading cause of Kennedy's pulmonary hemmoraging. They cannot feed them during the next 24-48 hours due to their treatment however they are receiving proteins and other nutrients through their IV.

The emotions and lack of sleep are beginning to take their toll on mommy and daddy. So many bells, alarms, wires, and machines are hooked up to their tiny little bodies. So many uncertainties, potential problems, and future side affects have our minds going in so many directions. The hope and love that we have for Drake and Kennedy will keep us pushing on.


  1. Those tiny little diapers! Get some rest mom & dad!

  2. Love seeing the pictures of your precious babies. You are in my thoughts and prayers everyday. I pray for your strength and comfort, for the babies fighting power, and the doctors' knowledge and skills. Your family is filled with so much love to help you through. Thinking of you and sending you hugs!!

  3. I have been praying hard! May the hands of God work through those awesome Doctors and Nurses!

    I love you all!

    -Cousin Lauren. (& Brian!)

  4. I would tell you to take care of yourself and get some rest, but you're a mom now and I know that really changes how you view your own needs. The only need that you really need met right now is for your babies to be ok....everything else (sleep, nutrition, etc) just seems so much less important.

    Praying and praying and praying for the health and happiness of Kennedy and Drake.
