Update and pictures.

On a real internet connection at the hospital outside of the NICU.

Talked to the doctor, and they are now officially pretty confident it was oxygen deprivation in the womb and during birth. Her liver enzymes were still a bit high this morning, so it is really a wait and see. The doctor said that this type of thing generally resolves itself within a few days to a week. She does have a slight edema in her brain in the from of the ventricle sacs that hold fluid are just slightly non-symmetrical. That could be what is causing the tremors, or the tremors could just still be her. So, no ct scan, no spinal tap, just wait. So pray for quick results over the next day or two, and hopefully she is home sooner rather than later. A week is a long time.

Jeannett is getting her staples out right about now, and her and Lucy are being discharged. She's going to come by here, and then head home with Lucy. We're going to try and keep somebody here with Jillian most of the days she is her. Lame that I have to say that, but it is what it is at this point.

Now for some pictures. Jeannett can give the full story later, but here are some pics (without Jeannett in them, she wants to be the judge of what she puts up on herself).


Lucy on the table.



Jill on the table.



Lucy in the nursery, she was pretty chill.



Jill in the nursery, she was much less chill.



Together again.



Another.



Poor Jill in the transport getting ready to go to Sierra Vista. Jeannett did not like this part. Who wants to see their kid in that thing? Looks like an alien contraption that's going to suck her brains out or something. Don't these people think about such things? Function over form, I guess.



Jill in the hands of the NICU nurse, which thankfully are good hands.

I was trying to picture the two in the womb. Couldn't. So glad to see the pics. Thanks for all the updates and now the pictures. With all your going through and doing, it's been great to feel like we are there with you and praying with you. Of course, will continue to pray and hope Jeannett and Lucy get some rest...you, too. Jill will be there soon.

They are precious you guys. Welcome home to Jeannett and Lucy. Let's pray that Jill can join the four of you soon. Thanks for the great pictures Andy.
I'm not gonna call and bug but remind Jeannett that I'm not that far away if she needs ANYTHING, help with laundry, errands whatever!

Hugs to all.

Seeing those girls together like that actually made my uterus twinge a bit! They are precious - I'm SOOOOO Happy for you guys, and glad Jeannette and Lucy get to go home! She'll feel so much better once those staples are out and she's in her own place...course it won't feel exactly right until Jill is home - but still, better then the hospital. Many prayers and well wishes to you all - congratulations on your gorgeous family! What does Henry think of his little sisters??

Glad things are not as bad as originally thought. They are both so precious!!

You know, the NICU isn't so bad... both my kids had a stay there as preemies, as you know. It was hard leaving them there at night, but it was for the best. Now look at mine... you wouldn't have even noticed that they were NICU residents as long as they were!
