Here's another one to mark this amazing journey - a map of the milestones we've crossed:
11/27/06: Girls were born at 5:49 pm & 5:53 pm
11/29/06: First time holding Mary-Gail! (Rebecca wasn't doing well and still had her umbilical catheters in place)
12/1: Learned that Mary-Gail's PDA (valve in her heart) didn't close upon delivery. Would try a series of drugs (Neprophin) to close valve. Checked out of Room 415; went home without any babies :( Here's my support crew: Mom, Dad, JoJo, and Car Sue
12/11: LifeFlight team took Mary-Gail to McKay Dee Hospital in Ogden for PDA Ligation surgery.
12/12: Mary-Gail had heart surgery - she has two teeny, tiny titanium clips that crimped the valve closed.
