News from Ogden...

Hi everyone! I just wanted to give you all a quick update on the babes... We found out on Tuesday night that the girls' heart valves still hadn't developed and that they would be transferred to the Mckay Dee Hospital in Ogden for surgery. Tuesday was a hard day.  We have been so spoiled with the NICU being so close to us in Provo, that it was difficult to see them have to be transported far from home! Anyway, my mom, sister, and one of my dearest friends drove out that night and on Wednesday we drove out to Ogden to see the girls. The girls traveled by ambulance, and had their surgery yesterday. Everything went really well with the surgery, and we thought they would be home today but the nurses said they would probably keep them another night to make sure they're stable. We have been staying at a little hotel in Ogden so that we can be near the babies. Thank you again for all of your thoughts and prayers--they are so needed, and so appreciated. I will try and keep everyone as updated as I can-- and I am grateful for all the offers for help!  We have the BEST friends and family!
