My dream came true today and many prayers were answered: I got to hold both of them together. There are no words in the English language to describe how this felt. It is just not possible to articulate this, so I won't even try. It was the first time they have touched each other since they were born and they were visibly calmed. It was such an incredible gift that I will never forget for as long as I live. Please thank God for this wonderful blessing.

My doc released me from the hospital yesterday and I went home without my babies. That was the hardest thing I have ever had to do. Both boys are in NICU and will probably be there for a couple of weeks. Tony thinks less, I think more, so I will just say somewhere in the middle. Brock and Braden are in about the same place with regard to everything. Weight, temp, jaundice, energy and strength. Brock is doing better at feeding than Braden is and is taking 40 cc every feeding to Braden's taking 15 cc. Braden wasn't tolerating food very well yesterday so they were giving him his fluids via IV. Today, they have added food back in small increments. He seems to be doing well with it.
