Everything went well yesterday at Epic. Scott did a great job!
Once we were done with our responsibilities at the middle school (and got packed up), we drove to Erin's.
We got here at about 9:30 last night. Molly didn't go to sleep until 1 am and she's already up today (it's 7am here.) I'm tired!
I will get to go to the hospital a little later today.
Little Onne is doing really well. He's off all IVs and eating on his own. He just needs to grow now. Caliana on the other hand is having some trouble and may have to have surgery this week for patent ductus arteriosus (PDA). Basically, its a congenital heart disease where a valve between the heart and lungs (necessary for an embryo's lung function as they don't take in oxygen) fails to close after birth, making it difficult for the baby to get the oxygen it needs. The Drs. are going to give her little body until Thursday to start doing what its supposed to do on its own. But because her duct is zigzagged instead of straight, the Drs. anticipate surgery.
The boys are excited to be here, (they have that whole water park instead of just a pool) and Stephanie's coming over to play.
Merritt read every sign on the way here and is begging to go to a Dodgers game AND an Angels game. He's even tried to talk me into the Padres.
"Mom, Legoland isn't that far from Aunt Erin's house and that is where the Padres play."
As far as he's concerned every day we're here should have a game scheduled and we should have tickets.
Speaking of baseball, Merritt's team played a really exciting game in the tournament on Saturday. The game was almost 3 hours long and they WON! I think the final score was 28-27.
It was over 100 degrees, but those boys were troopers.
We are praying for you.
I love you and look forward to the day you get home.
