1st..your prayers and love are working. My dad is doing so much better. Not 100% yet, but the pacemaker is gone...and he was doing so much better when we saw him tonight. I told him how my friends are all praying for him, and adding him to their prayers, prayer circles, and prayer books, and he is so thankful to you as well!
Next.....We have twins!
Grant and Julia were over last night for dinner and to play games. It was the first time she had that pre delivery look, and when I told her, she said "oh, what is that...I hope it's good!" Good it was. We got a call from Grant at 11:45, Julia's water had just broken, and they were on the way to the hospital.
Of course I had a hard time sleeping. I was up at 4:00 am, and texted Grant. She was in her room, and dialating. By 8:00 am she was at 5 cm, and fully effaced. I went to let their dog out, and feed him, then off to the hospital. Grant called me as I pulled up to the hospital, and they were going into the operating room, just in case it was a C-section.
Julia's dad and I were waiting for about an hour, when Grant came out at about 11:45, and let us know our babies were here. Warner Russell Holmes was born at 11:07, 5 lbs. 15 oz, 19 3/4 inches. Hannah Marianne Holmes was born at 11:25 4 lbs. 13 oz. 18 inches long. We got to see pictures, and then went in to see Julia at about 12:00.
After visiting with our newest supermom, delivering two babies without a c-section, and looking fabulous, but oh so tired and sore. Grant and I went into the NICU to see our babies.
Dad and his little girl...
And his little man....
Grant has some great pictures of Julia with her babies in the delivery room.
Little Hannah is quite the trooper. She is eating well, breathing well, and all is well with our little petite and sweet beauty, looking like her mommy.
Little Warner, what a guy. He is having a bit of trouble keeping his lungs full. So our guy has oxygen tubes, an IV, and a gastro-tube to keep the air from going to his tummy. The nurses say it should only be for a couple of days.
WARNER IS TUBE FREE! I received this picture from Grant today!!
So, a new part of my heart is given to our newest Holmes babies. And as my daddy's heart is healing mine feels so much better. Thank you all for your thoughts, wishes and prayers. We are blessed.
