Seriously slacking here..

 SO sorry we've fallen this behind on the blog. I guess now that the journey is "over" I just don't know what to post anymore. The boys are 7wks & 2 days old and growing so fast! Ryan is over 4lbs and Liam is just shy of it. They both did GREAT during and after their surgeries! The incision site is just below their shoulder blade and did not require stitches, just surgical glue. Can you imagine doing heart surgery on such tiny humans?? They are eating approx 22 & 25oz every 2 hours. I'm pumping still, trying to keep up the best I can : )
 Last week was the boys Welcome to the World shower. I know Mommy & Daddy had fun taking a break and getting to visit with a lot of their friends. I made Carrie a scrapbook for the boys and had some other stuff personalized for them.
 I realized after my last Dr visit that my regular OB has no idea any of this ever happened. Last I saw him was getting the ok to carry one last time. Boy will he be surprised at my annual in a couple months..LOL

Liam's Surgery

Liam's surgery is finished, it was very fast and went perfectly. Mommy said there was no blood loss so no need for transfusion and they were walking with him back to the hospital. Continued prayers for him and Mommy & Daddy as they were told to expect a rough few days following surgery as he recovers.

Prayer request, boys having surgeries this week.

 Liam is having his PDA ligation surgery early tomorrow morning. Ryan's will be Friday morning. Please pray for them, as well as Mommy & Daddy. The Dr's say this procedure is "simple" and should really help the boys towards getting off their vents and in growing as well but extra thoughts and prayers would be greatly appreciated. I will update afterwards.

 Growth update: Liam is up to 3lbs2oz and Ryan is now 3lbs8oz!! They both are maintaining their temps and are in open air beds and get to wear clothes now :)

So sorry everyone....

I would like to take a moment to apologize to all of our sweet followers... I've completely neglected the blog since Liam and Ryan arrived :( It's been quite the roller coaster. I promise to post a better blog entry soon and include a link to some of our pictures. For now, I'll leave you with a little preview of how they are looking at 4 weeks old! Love to you all. Thank y'all so much for the kind words and countless prayers!

Craig and Carrie

Sweet Liam... Saying I love you!!
Our chunky monkey Ryan :)
