Today the whole Hughey clan along with Jacque made the trip up to Arlington to celebrate Christmas....Hospital Style!! We enjoyed the exchanging of gifts...Ford and Hayden received a slew of gifts from their Grandparents, Aunts and Uncle. They will definitely be leaving this joint in style. I feel certain that they are going to be metro babies from the get-go. The twins are very blessed to have wonderful Grandparents along with 3 Aunts and an Uncle who care deeply for them. It was such a great day until late in the afternoon when we received another scare. Dana began leaking more amniotic fluid...so we are now back to square one!! It seems as though each hurdle we clear, 5 more are looming. Dana had been doing so great. She was slowly given a few privileges; from bathroom breaks to a shower every 3rd day. That will all be put on the back burner for the time being...until we can clear this hurdle and the leak seals over again. We are taking this at a Day by Day basis, and look forward to each new day. We are told that each day the twins stay in utero, that is 2-3 days less in the NICU. Our next milestone will be this Saturday the 29th, when we reach the 24 week mark and Dana can start receiving steroid shots, which will help develop the boys' lung growth.
So we ask that you continue to keep Dana and the boys on your prayer list and to send positive thoughts our way. We want to wish all of those reading this a very merry Christmas and a safe Happy New Year. It is amazing to witness the power of prayer each day...and we want to thank you all again for keeping Dana and the Boys in your thoughts and prayers.
-Until next time; Trey
