What a roller coaster...

Today's been kind of rough so I'm turning this over to my Mom to make today's update. Both Terry & I are on an emotional roller coaster right now, so I feel it's best to let my Mom post for today....

Today Janet called the house and said that Terry needed to get to the hospital because the babies Doctor wanted to talk to both of them.
When we got here the Dr was here in minutes. She said that Addison had a bleed in her head. On a scale of 1 to 5, 5 being the worse, on the right side was a 1 and that it may heal on its own. On the left side it was a 4. This has a chance of about 25% that this could take care of its self. But if not they will be dealing with cerebral palsy, missed spelled, but you get the drift of what they may have to deal with. This bleed was found when they did an ultra sound of the head. Alexis seems to be fine but she will be checked on Monday. Both had x-rays yesterday to see how the tubes placement in their chest was doing. They both are still on respirators, but are initiating their own breath and the machines just helps them along.
All of these issues are just do to the fact that they were so early.

The one thing that we must remember is the power of prayer, so please keep Addison and Alexis, Janet and Terry all in your prayers.
