Extra! Extra! Read all about it!
Today was heavy on the news. Fitting, since today was our official twin due date. The little dragons are well on their way, gaining weight and getting approvals from their doctors.
Let's start with Baby A, Maisie. She's weighing in at just over 5lbs and taking all of her feeds by bottle. Maisie's on the official "Brady Watch" and if she goes all week without one, she will be HOME on Saturday!
Baby B, James, has some pretty fantastic news himself. He weighs over 4lbs now! He is so stable that Dr Rothenberg, the head of the Minimally Invasive Surgery Department at the Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children, scheduled James for his reanastomosis on Tuesday morning at 7:30. We are thrilled that this will be taking place because it means James will have better growth following the surgery. Growth equals lung tissue, and lung tissue means coming home. It's about time! They'll also take care of the bundle of hernias that James has acquired since Dr Rothenberg did the ileostomy surgery nearly 10 weeks ago.
We have a lot to do to get ready; our time in our quiet and empty home is dwindling. These little dragons are on the move!
