"Praise the Lord... Jaron and Teagan's surgery went well. They started first with Jaron at 10:00 this morning, and Teagan followed right after, and by noon the surgeon came out to tell us they were finished and doing good. The whole "O.R." just comes right to their beds in the NICU, which is so nice to not have to move the babies. Not so nice for the rest of the parents wanting to visit the little ones, because they shut down the NICU to visitors during a sterile procedure like that. We went back to see them afterward, and they were just sleeping away. The medical staff has the twins sedated and on pain meds, so they will be very sleepy for a while.
We are just so glad the surgery is out of the way and the PDA's are now fixed! I don't know if I explained how they did the surgery or not in any of my other updates, but they go in from the back, right behind their armpits, and then go through the ribs to tie off the hole. So they will just have a little scar right behind their arms. Now, in Mitch's words, they can start working in "maximum efficiency" :-) All you who know Mitch, I know you're smiling right now because you can hear him saying something like that! We are hoping by Thursday or Friday they will be back at Women and Babies. I am asking the Lord for a speedy post-op recovery, and minimal pain for the babes! I believe while they are sleeping and recouping, Jesus is talking with them in wonderful dreams and visions!
We figured tonight we just need to do something fun, and spend some time with our little miss, Kaylan. So we are looking forward to some E-town Fair fun, which mostly means that greasy fair food, and Kaylan will LOVE seeing the animals.
So blessed to have each and every one of you, even those we don't know. I can't even begin to explain how blessed we are and feel. I pray in return that each of you are being showered with blessings.
In His Grip,
