Update for Saturday 12-22-07

Well, since I was in a rush the other day, I appologize for not giving on the important info here on the site but here it is now. On Wednesday, December 19, 2007, Jennifer gave birth to two beautiful angels, Addelynn Elisabeth and Alexander Gabriel. Addelyn was born at 19:14 and was 3lbs, 14.5" and Alexander was born at 19:16 and was 4 lbs 7.5 oz and 19.5". Some of you may not be aware but Jen had been in the hospital for 12 days prior to the delivery on bed rest due to preeclampsia. The goal we had was to get to at least 34 weeks which would have been 12/26/07. We came up just a week short, but that is just fine. On Wednesday, Jen had been complaining of a severe headache and her blood pressure was up so the decision was to go ahead and deliver the babies. And now, this gets everyone off on the same spot.

Today, Jen is feeling much better. Her temperature is gone but she will still be on the antibiotics for a while longer. She broke her fever around 11 PM last night so if she can keep the fever away through 11 PM tonight she will be able to go and see the little ones for only her second time and she is hoping to be able to hold Addie for the first time.

With regards to the little ones. Both are doing just fine for this stage of the game. Alex is gradually being switched to room air and less dependant on O2. Sounds like he will be on O2 for a bit longer but things are progressing nicely.

Congratulations to you all. The little ones are just beautiful and, Jen, I hope you are able to cover them with kisses very soon. I'm sure you are having a hard time right now...not feeling well and not being able to be with them. I will continue to send lots of positive thoughts, energy, and prayers to you, Addie and Alex (darling names!). Happy holidays.
