Going down memory lane!
As the boys approach almost 6 months old, I find myself thinking back to all we have been through. I love this picture!! This is Kevin trying to help me with a Non-Stress Test. We were trying to locate the heartbeats of both of the babies. This was no easy task. It reminds me of his dedication and determination he had/has! I can't wait to show the boys this picture and explain to them how lucky they are to have such a great dad. I can't wait to tell them how badly he fought for them!! Soooo many stories to tell!
Lately, I have been talking with a lot of parents who are going through the same thing we did, as we speak. It is my mission to give hope to families with TTTS/IUGR. I just want them to know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel!! Hang in there and say those prayers!!!
By the way, I would like to say hello and thank you to Lynn. Lynn is a great friend that we actually have never met! She works with our good friend Mike G. She has followed our story and said many prayers for our boys!! Lynn, you are one of a kind!! We so appreciate your sweet and encouraging comments on our blog. They mean more to us then you will ever know! Thank you very much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh goodness, going down your memory lane brings of rush of my own memories. I can remember talking with you daily on the phone....discussing our worries, outcomes, etc. You were/are such a great friend.

I stumbled across your blog on either the TTTS Foundation site or Twins Magazine site and have read through some of your entries.
We just found out that one of our mo/di girls has absent end diastolic flow. The girls had a 21% discordance as of 2/28, and they'll be measured again on 3/15. Amniotic fluid levels and bladders look great. They are planning to hospitalize me at 24 weeks and give me the steriod shots if it is still present then. I am so nervous. I have a 3 year old son and dear husband that I don't want to leave at home. It helps to read the positive stories of people who've been there. Thanks for sharing! Kelly

Dear Kevin and Danielle...It's all those trips down memory lane that keep us filled with such gratitude and deep appreciation for the magnitude of prayers and positive thoughts sent by so many people!!! I can't help but think back to all those appointments, ultrasounds, stress tests etc...and when I look into the beautiful eyes of my sweet Ben and Jake, my breath is taken away!
Love you all so very much
Gramma Sue!
