And just like that...

I was so excited the whole way up to visit the boys. Couldn't wait! I was telling Caleb how fun they were yesterday and that I couldn't wait to spend more time with them and hold them, and on and on. We walked in the doors and were greeted by the doctor, saying that the boys were back on CPAP and had lots of spells last night and today. He was going to start the process of checking for infections again... all I heard was blah, blah, WHAT... this can't be for real! That just shows you how fast the pendulum swings.

Pastor Mark this morning was talking about being on the mountain and in the valley, and when you are on the mountain soon comes the valley... all I heard was blah, blah, I'm on the mountain, whooo hooo! (for those of you who were there, the whooo hoo will make more sense!) I honestly was thinking about last Sunday, being in the valley, and how I was grateful to be on the mountain for a change today. His sermon talked directly to our life right now, and how we need to see the good in what we are going through even though it can be so rough some days. I did tell Caleb on our way home that one tangible positive I have found out of this whole situation is that I have been able to spend more time with him than normal. I am so thankful for that. This time of year I rarely see my husband it seems and I am grateful that we can spend quality time together, even if it's in the car talking.

Really, I wasn't that shocked to hear what the doctor said. I had a feeling something would be up. The boys looked good though and had good coloring, and really no spells while Caleb and I were there. They did stop Luke's feeds because he hasn't had a poop for a while. I really pray that he can start to digest things better because he needs to start eating more and gaining weight. His brother, on the other hand, is still eating and pooping quite well. When we got their Terry, their nurse, told us she almost died laughing when she changed Max's diaper. He had a poop the size of his head!!

Max sleeping with his tiny pacifier!

Max, you can see his pacifier by his hand... so small!

Luke, he sleeps with his tongue out, haha :)

Little Luke, I love him!

All I have to say is tomorrow is another day, a new story, but still a reason to believe in miracles!!! :)
