First Thanksgiving

Rylee and her day nurse

Thanksgiving has come and gone, but I still would like to express once again our thanks to all of you who have supported us and loved us through the many challenges that we have gone through this year. Life has handed us many surprises, but the love and support of family and friends is what we have to be thankful for this year. You all have been blessings to our lives. We had a great Thanksgiving day with our family and the girls seemed to enjoy their day. They both started getting sick on Wednesday evening and we are now doctoring up our little girls. They both have some colds. Jordan has had a fever since yesterday afternoon, but after we give her Motrin or Tylenol she seems to get better. It was 102 this morning when I checked it. It did scare me for a bit as I don't want to see her sick. We are very lucky that this is the first cold that she has had since she has been home so I think we can handle it. Rylee hasn't had a fever yet, but she has some pretty nasty secretions. We are having to suction every few minutes and she now has blood coming out of her trach. I will call her doctor in the morning just to let them know what is going on with her. Tiny K was here on Monday afternoon and I think we heard the word amazing a thousand times! They are really happy that our girls have come so far since they first seen them in June. Jordan is pulling up to everything and has started cruising along furniture. She is even climbing if she can get her tiny legs up high enough. Rylee is rolling all over and we have to keep track of her now that she is mobile. I have a feeling that she will be crawling by her 1st birthday. We hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and we look forward to seeing everyone over the upcoming holidays.
