The Twins have arrived


This is the trouble maker. She is the one who started events that could not be stopped
Justine went to her doctors office for a routine checkup and an ultrasound. It was found during the ultrasound that this little girl was much smaller than her sister because she had twisted and turned so much that she had tied a knot in the embilical cord and was only getting about 10% of the nutrients that she needed. Off to the Hospital they went so Justine could be monitored. During a phone call Justines water broke and it was decided to move her to Seattle where the babies were born. They were not well enough equiped to care for this small of a baby. By the way this one is Wynnona and she weighs in at 2 LBs 11oz
Her head is smaller than a soft ball...maybe even a baseball

Now Wynnona has a sister who came a minute later. She weighed in at 3lbs 7oz and her name is Courtney. Right now Courtney is not as fiesty as her 1 minute older sister because when the Doctors gave Justine some medicine to stop labor Courtney got some of it and Wynnona didn't because her cord was tied. Once this medicine wears off Courtney will be in good shape. Courtney has oxygen to help her breath

As you can tell the babies are small...or should I say tiny. Thats my hand in the lower picture.
Anyways we are glad they are here. All are healthy and improving each day. Mom to.
The girls will be in the hospital for at least a month.
 When they pass the test... 3 things: being able to eat and breath without forgetting to breath while eating. Thats 2 things. The last is being able to keep a body temperture.
As of noon today Justine has been discharged from the hospital. She will be staying at one of Ricks uncles place which is only a few miles from the hospital. There are only 2 nights a week in which she can stay in the hospital.
For us this makes grand child 10 and 11
