Both girls are continuing to do really well. Last night when I called to get updates on the girls, Lisa told me that they both had gained a lot of weight.
Addison is currently weighing in at 2 pounds 15 1/2 ounces...just shy of 3 pounds!!! YEAH!! (See the below pictures of me holding Addison-- taken on Tuesday, May 19th.) Yes, she does look a little uncomfortable in this picture, but we have to hold her a certain way so her neck is properly placed. But trust me, she was totally comfortable. She slept for almost 2 hours like that & was breathing at 99% the whole time!
Alexis is currently weighing in at 3 pounds 7 ounces!! Alexis had another blood transfusion on Monday because her red blood cell count was a little low. The doctor seems to think that this will help her be able to get rid of the c-pap soon! We really hope so! I can't wait to be able to see her little face everyday!! Yesterday she had it off for a little bit while the nurse was readjusting everything. I couldn't believe how much alike they look all of the sudden. We are still awaiting the results of the pathology reports from the placenta to find out if they are fraternal or identical. I'm really starting to believe that they may actually be identical.
All and all the girls are having another great week!!! Yes, I'm still working on my Q & A blog. We've just had a lot of stuff going on this week. I hope to finish it soon! If you have a question please feel free to email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
