Still Boys

I had another sonogram today and they are both still boys.  They are growing like they should be and look great!  Baby B is measuring about 26 weeks 2 days and Baby A is measuring 24 weeks 5 days.  They weigh 1 lb 12 oz and 1 lb 6 oz.  My doc said if they can stay in there for at least two more weeks they have a 90% chance of being born without any health problems.  We hope they will decide to stay at least another nine weeks.  Thank the Father for us.
Sydney has had a string of recurring UTIs for the last four months and as a result, she has to have a renal sonogram and a big test at the hospital tomorrow called a VCUG. This is a lovely test where they catheter her and inject radioactive dye into her bladder and watch what is does on some type of X-ray.  Now since it is an x-ray, I am not allowed to be in the room with her; her daddy gets that privilege. Please pray for her and us as this test will not be easy on any of us.  If the test shows what we think it will show, she will probably have to be scheduled for surgery to correct the problem.  My niece had the same problem when she was a baby, but hers corrected itself.  We do not think Sydney's will if that is what she has.  I'll keep you all posted on what happens with her tomorrow.
