Ultrasound 4

Today, we had our fourth ultrasound since the laser ablation procedure. As he was doing the ultrasound, the Czech doctor just kept saying, "this is good . . . this is good . . . this is good". As we watched the boys move on the monitor while the doctor got his measurements, Brian and I just kept whispering things to each other--what a difference from three weeks ago . . . that's the heart beating . . . there's a full bladder . . . the amount of fluid is good . . . the smaller one is moving so much more. Now, of course, we listened to hear the doctor confirm our "readings"! The doctor reminded us again, that while things are great today, we still need to monitor these little guys week-by-week! But, ultrasound four went well. Brian said afterward, "you're going to need a double stroller". I took that to mean--buy whatever you want sweetie:)!

In all seriousness, we are just overwhelmed. Again, we are overwhelmed by all the love, support and prayer that we have received. Every time I think about the reality of TTTS (Twin-to-Twin-Transfusion-Syndrome) twenty years ago, I am overwhelmed that God uses his people to bring about a truly miraculous procedure that changes the outcome so dramatically. Mostly, we are overwhelmed at how personal our God is, and despite the vast needs throughout the entire world, He is so real to us individually!

Thank you again for all your love and support!

Much Love,
Aleisha (for all of us)
