Day 2

It is day two and we are anxious to see the boys! They are both now in the NICU and I have only gotten to see them once. I was able to hold Dyer, but haven't been able to touch or hold Wyatt. Russell will get to go see them both again at 8 today and hopefully I will get to see them again this afternoon. They are both being fed through an IV and getting help with oxygen, but hopefully they will be on their own soon! They are definitely the biggest babies in the NICU (which we are thrilled about), so hopefully they will not have to stay in there too long!

We just found out yesterday around 7 that the boys would be making their arrival so soon! My platelet count was low and on Tuesday A.M. they tested it again and it was even lower...So they scheduled us for a c-section at 12:30. My sister was able to hop on a plane and make it, and mom and dad arrived a couple hours later! Russell's mom and Aunt Lynn were here so everyone got to see them for a while until they whisked them away to the NICU!

They had me on some medication yesterday that made me completely crazy! I threw up about twice an hour, fell asleep about every 30 minutes and then talked uncontrollably until I would pass out again! The last "side effect" may not have been the drugs but may have just been my me :)......But I told everyone that would listen that there was NO possible way I could EVER be a drug addict because I absolutely hated the way this made me feel....I thought that the statement was so hilarious that I repeated it to everyone and anyone that would listen!! I am now on some new drugs which are making me feel a bit more normal! I may have to stay a bit longer than they thought because of the low platelet count thing but they will just continue to monitor me. We are hoping that baby dyer will be out of the NICU today or tomorrow but they said that Wyatt would be a bit longer! We will keep you updated!
