Seven years ago today... (part 4)

For the month of June, I decided to write a series of posts about my twins' first month of life to help raise awareness about prematurity and TTTS (twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome).

Seven years ago today, I made my way to the NICU again to visit my babies, who were 2 days old. I asked when I'd be able to hold them, and they said I could go ahead and hold Cuddlebug for a few minutes. I cried, I was so happy. The nurse helped me gently lift him out of the isolette, and showed me how to keep the monitor wires from getting tangled up or pulling off. I only got to hold him for a few minutes that first time, but I loved finally getting to cuddle with him!

Bearhug was able to "graduate" from the respirator to a c-pap. He wasn't stable enough to be held yet, so I spent some time sitting with him and letting him hold my finger.
