Quick update

I’m still mourning the loss of Tuesday. I think of her all the time and my heart breaks for her family. I pray for peace and comfort for them and everyone who loved Tuesday, including myself.

It’s been an emotional roller coaster for the past several weeks. I’ve struggled with life and death all within the same day. On L&B’s birthday, our surrogate was transported via helicopter to another hospital that had a NICU (neonatal intensive care unit) because we thought the babies would be born. It was also the day Tuesday passed. I experienced ranges of emotions all in one day that some experience over a lifetime.

The boys stayed put and I attended Tuesday’s service in CO. Tuesday was able to do so much in her short life and touched more people you and I will ever know, including getting a group of 23 twin moms who met online 3 years ago, to leave behind their spouses and children to be there for Tuesday and her family. The moms flew in from all over the US, and even from Meike from Honduras! It was a beautiful day, a touching celebration and a heartfelt gathering to support Tuesday’s family. I was so grateful to be a part of it.

J&T have set aside their drama and are doing well. We have a c section scheduled for Sunday, 2/22. We’re opting for surgery because Tommy is breech. Little bugger has been teasing us all along by being breech, then head down and now breech again. This will be the first time we’re away from L&B for more than a night and I’m a little anxious on how they’ll do.

There’s our quick update. I’m not sure when I’ll be back because I think things are going to be a little chaotic initially from being a family of four to a family of six.

Keep us in your thoughts and pray for a safe and healthy delivery.
