We got some prayer advice from an unexpected source yesterday afternoon...the neonatologist, Dr. Hodges, who was in the operating room and was responsible for the babies' care for their first two days. What a blessing to have a Christian man making decisions for our babies when their lives were in such critical need! He gave us a few things that we should be specifically praying for and so we invite you to join us in lifting up the following:
- Development of the babies' ability to eat well and process foods on their own. The sooner they can do this, the sooner they can pull out the IV's.
- Protection from infection. This is one of the greatest dangers to the babies' health. The more IV's they have and the longer they have them, the higher the risk of infection.
- Clarity in decision making and general well-being of the NICU doctors and nurses...please don't forget about these amazing people who have provided their love and expertise to keeping our babies healthy and growing!
Thank you all so much for your love, prayers, and support throughout this journey! The babies are all doing very well!!
