Brain scans - please pray!; praise x 3

We were relieved and incredibly grateful that Will and and the two girls had clear brain scans yesterday (a day earlier than we'd expected); please pray with us that David's and Seth's will also be completely normal and clear of any sign of brain bleeding. They get theirs today. Thank you for standing with us and behind the precious babies!

When Marcie was getting her head scan done, she immediately reached up to feel/massage the ultrasonic gel they squirted on her head. She is SO active (as she was in the womb), she's not giving herself a chance to gain weight, even though they've increased her volume of milk (6 cc's each feeding).

She and David have had some struggles with apnea and heart rate dropping. She was put on a different type and mask and is being given reminder breaths. Her blood work and a chest x-ray were normal. The nurse today said very seriously to me, "Pray this IV continues to hold." Yes, Lord, please! No need for a broviac yet, thank God. Please pray for peace and comfort for her so she will settle down, be less feisty/agitated, and just rest in His arms.

I pray God fills those isolettes with His peace and comfort from the Holy Spirit. I prayed that very specifically for Seth last night and was thrilled to hear and see God answer!

Seth's blood gases and chest x-ray were excellent, so the staff was able to turn down the oscillator. He has been so much more comfortable and relaxed!
All babies are now receiving my milk! So exciting (and serious business for me). I thank God for His provision and pray I'll be able to make enough for all of them during the critical first few months. After that, we'll need to supplement. I crave getting to hold each one and nurse individually!
