LooKinG BaCk

Today I took Kohen and Addison back to the U of U New Born ICU to see their Primary Nurses. It was so fun for them to see Kohen and Addi. They have grown and changed so much. They were both 6 weeks early and came by emergency c-sections. They both spent a fair amount of time in the hospital.
Kohen was diagnosed with Lung Disease and was intibated on 2 different occasions. He was on oxygen for a 3 weeks and had a couple of doses of surfactant. He was born weighing 5 lbs. 4 oz and 19." He came to us on May 15. 2006... but wasn't due until June 21, 2006. We are SO thankful that he is healthy and STRONG.
Addison was born Sept 11, 2007, her due date was October 23, 2007. She came early because I got a very quick and vErY scary case of Pre-Eclampsia. She also failed a NST and a BPP. I was put on Magnesium Sulfate to bring my Blood Pressure down and also the swelling in my brain. Addison's delivery was much more critical than Kohen's, because both of us were in danger. She came in weighing 3lbs. 15 oz and 17" long. Addi was a little spit fire and only had to be on a round of antibiotics. She spent most of her time in the Low Birth Weight Center to work on feeds and getting her weight up. We brought her home at 4 lbs 8 oz. We are SO lucky to have them with us and that they are BOTH healthy and strong.
They are the best things that have happened to Zach and Me. We couldn't be more blessed to have them. They are so FUN and bring so much JOY and Happiness to us each and everyday. We are so PROUD of you Kohen and Addi. We LOVE you TONS!!!
