23 Weeks

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

Patton had a great time entertaining Aunt Dana yesterday. Aunt Hills and Aunt Hoops and I enjoyed spending the day with her and meeting the doctor.
We are all praying for you and Dana and Patton continues to tell those twins she is not ready to play with them yet.
I know everything will go gret tomorrow when they begin the shots.

We love you guys!
Heather, Patton & John

Please know that you are in our prayers and many others in Georgia are praying for you as well. Remember each day is a gift and God does not give us any more than we can handle. You guys are going to make incredible parents and the boys are going to be welcomed into this world by such a huge extended family. I hope the new year brings you many wonderful moments of joy!! I know that with two boys you guys are going to have many, many wonderful moments!!!
We love you all,
Angie, Jake, Emma and Savannah

I happened upon this web site and started crying when I realized what you guys have been going though - I had no idea. I will be praying for you, Trey and the boys.

Love you, Emily

You guys don't know me, but we are praying for you and your precious boys. I am a retired OB & nursery RN, and I always loved the premis. They are such miracles and so won-derful to observe as they grow and make progress. Ijust love their little hands and feet. You are blessed that Dana is doing good and you can touch your babies. God is great and He loves little children. If we just come to Him with the inocence, faith and love of a little child, we will be richly blessed. Our love to you thru Jesus Christ, Mary S.

With most sincere wishes for a blessed day every day. A great comfort for me in difficult times has always been the scriptures: Proverbs 3:5-6
