Then my phone rang... What could be wrong? It's too early in the week...
Turns out that it was my long time friend Chris who now lives in the town where I had to do my training for work. He took care of me this week and helped me make it through the week without going insane. Thanks Chris. God gives us good friends for a reason.

Ok, enough about my week. Leila and Logan were doing well today. They took Logan off the ventilator and put him on CPAP yesterday afternoon and as of this writing he is still off the ventilator (about 30 hours). Leila is also looking better. Her color is looking much better (more pink and less grey/white-ish). The Nurse also indicated that she could hear some bowel sounds. It's not official, but that would mean that she has intestines and that they might be starting to work. Keep praying that God will continue to heal her. They also took the drain tube out of Leila's side which is a huge step in the right direction.
Absence certainly makes the heart grow fonder. There were only three people I wanted to see today. I'll give you three guesses, but you'll only need one. And the two little ones have grown so much in the past week.

Amie's mom made some pretty awesome blankets for them. We put them on top of their incubators until we can actually use them.
