We continue to believe in the power of prayer. Thank you ALL for this! Everyday we are humbled by your faith and support. There is no other way to explain it. Early this morning we were told by the Dr “if Elizabeth does not pee in the next 24-48 hours she is not going to make it.” Elizabeth, if you remember did not have any measurable fluid for the last 3 weeks she was in mom. Therefore she had not been using her bladder or kidneys and they were not as developed as a normal 25 week old would be. Regardless and miraculously, she finally started to pee today! That means that while her renal functions are not where they need to be, they are working.
The Marys are struggling with their 25 week birth, on top of which they are still struggling with the effects of ttts. Both of them have different struggles. One minute they are worried about Ellen and the next it’s Elizabeth. The nurses in the NICU cannot take their eyes off of them and the doctors are constantly regulating and adjusting and accessing. Looks like we have traded one roller coaster for another. There’s only one way to ride………prayerfully.

Thank you for your comments and prayers! Love Bo and Stacy
